According to the press release from Anderson, last year, other alcohol manufacturers were exempted from having to serve food to patrons in order to remain open during the pandemic, but craft breweries were not included in the exemption. Supervisor Anderson stated that when he learned about this, he was surprised and felt the need to advocate for the local breweries to end the arbitrary and unfair requirement.

Because of this steadfast dedication, Anderson was able to help in changing the requirement by co-authoring a Board Letter to California’s Department of Public Health requesting the change. His request encompassed all of San Diego and all of California.
