More Beer Please!

Michigan is proposing a new law to ensure:

AN ON-PREMISES LICENSEE SHALL NOT ADVERTISE OR SELL ANY GLASS OF BEER AS A PINT IN THIS STATE UNLESS THAT GLASS CONTAINS AT LEAST 16 OUNCES OF BEER.”

A Michigan paper reports that State Representative David Knezek has been taking his own 16-ounce glass to bars to test if the so-called pints served actually contain 16 ounces. Some beer servings have come up short. This struck co-sponsor State Representative Jeff Irwin as “sort of low-level fraud.”

Knezek and Irwin argue that there are already laws in Michigan to protect people from getting short-changed at the deli or gas station, so why not at the bar?

It’s good to know … maybe… that some legislatures are still at work.
