|Changing the A in CSA to Alcohol...|
In addition to the wine deliveries, Lyon's CSA members also have the opportunity to work at his craft winery. There they can also offer suggestions about what he should make, which could lead to spectacular or terrible bottles. But it's not many wineries where you can offer up potential new flavors.
The market in Kansas City is ready for more craft alcohol. Imagine a homebrewing collective or CSA, wherein you received a monthly subscription of seasonal beer. Or somebody like Pirtle Winery in Weston creating a small wine membership program turning customers into winery members.
I'd be glad to pay for a partial share in the High Plains Distillery, if it meant I could have a stocked bar year round. Because the best way to get people to eat their vegetables is to infuse them in vodka.
