Good Beer Folks, Esmee and Kristen came up with the idea of hosting Sprout Initiative: a staff planting party. They built an herb garden out of wood pallets and arranged all the materials so our staff could easily drop by and help contribute to our staff herb garden.

It was essentially the modern world’s first Consumer Protection Act and remained intact as enforced law in Germany until 1987 when other countries within the European Union (EU) challenged it as protectionist.
