http://www.bwcitypaper.com/1editoria...12112&-nothing - Interesting article I ran across researching a Sweetwater IPA clone. Sweetwater's IPA just got pulled from Alabama for being too alcoholic. It also states that Georgia (where I live) just raised the ABV limit from 6% to 14%!!

yeah...makes perfect sense. I can buy 6 cases of 6%ABV beer and nobody bats an eyelash. But one single bottle of 6.1%ABV beer is illegal.

This country has major issues with alcohol...so many foolish laws that have no grounding in rationality or logic.

And to think Sweetwater's IPA (6.7% ABV) kicks my arse. :-)
