When you drink a great wine or a tasty IPA, you’re often tasting the land from which that creation came from. But what happens when the means of production becomes distributed and food, once produced in a brewery or factory, is produced at the point of consumption?

I ask this question of Zahr Said, Associate Professor at University of Washington School of Law. Said has spent a great deal of time studying the local beer creators market in the Pacific Northwest, and on this podcast we discuss the implications for the creators once food and drink becomes digitized, including the financial potential of global access to worldwide markets when their creation is digitized and eventually paired with local production.
