True CraftThe reader asked the $100 million question: how could he reach True Craft, the program Stone co-founder Greg Koch announced in April 2016?“We are a brewery in planning in High Point, N.C.,” Larry Fila wrote last week, “and are looking for capital to get us to the finish line and this sounds like a great opportunity, but cannot seem to get information on reaching them.”As I reported three years ago, Koch intended True Craft to be a financial lifeline to struggling breweries.

Ten days after the First World War had come to an end, Parliament passed a one-page Act with far-reaching consequences. Less than a year after women over 30 and meeting certain property qualifications were granted the vote for the first time, the Qualification of Women Act stated that women could now become MPs from the age of 21, the same as for men.The passing of the historic Act resulted in 17 women, including the well-known suffragette Christabel Pankhurst, standing in the General Election which was held the following month.
