I Repeat (with corrections)

This law has changed! In Iowa, the beer law has been brought up to (and here's the corrected part) 16.75%!

WOO.

I love New Mexico. The only liquor law I'm aware of is that you can't buy booze on Sunday before noon. Hell we had drive through liquor stores til a few years ago.

If you read the news on this beer from out of state could be higher than 5%, but this law changed stating beer brewed in the State of Iowa can be higher now.

This law changed both beer made in and brought into state to be up to 16.75% and not have sales go through the State to distribute.

It was passed so quickly that stores in the state were PI$$ED because they had kegs that they essentially had to get rid of in a few days to make any sort of profit.

So yes, this improved Iowa-Made limits, but also made it a heck of a lot easier to bring in higher-gravity brews.

yeah, the few liquor store owners i've talked to said the distributors are going crazy trying to figure out how they're going to deal with the new law. the state basically dropped everything and left it for the distributors to clean up. definitely some excitement around though!
