Find an interesting article about beer, breweries, beer laws etc.? Post it in this thread, with a link. AFAIK, there isn't another thread like this (I tried some searches), but if this duplicates another one, my apologies.


Proposals for alcohol law reform at the Minnesota Legislature. Yes, we're the only state that still sells 3.2 beer. No higher ABV beer in grocery stores, no wine. And some other glaring issues that need addressing.

Cocktails-to-go became the law in Montana earlier this year to, ostensibly, help restaurants that rely on booze sales to boost their margins during the pandemic. The law is permanent so, if we ever get back to normal, the option of picking up a round of Jack and Cokes at the curb or drive through will remain available.

i noticed this, and thought awww, how sweet!

I live in Montana, where there is no sales tax, so neener, neener. :D

We do have excise taxes (which are basically sales taxes on specific goods or services) on a lot of things but livestock feed ain’t one of them.

i'm thinking at this rate this thread should be moved to the debate forum...and my last two posts deleted.....


it is about politics. not that talk about the finer point of taxes bugs ME, forum rules say it's off limits......

if it stands, i want to point out. if i'm dead broke, i can always buy less stuff, but i don't want to worry about losing the house TOO!


and the tax on a 50lb sack of barley was 78 cents....
