Ever think you’re getting screwed at the bar? Well, not literally. But there is a decent chance you’re getting purposely shortchanged with the amount of brew you get for your buck when you order an actual pint of beer, and the state of Michigan has had enough.
MSN has the details:
Michigan lawmakers introduced a bill that would require every pint of beer to contain at least 16 ounces of the precious liquid. Most bars already comply, but some use thick-bottomed glasses that only hold 12 to 14 ounces. Under the law, bars that currently have smaller glasses would have to either buy new glassware or just stop calling their drinks “pints.” Rep. Brandon Dillon, a co-sponsor of the bill, says this isn’t the most pressing issue in the state (though some might disagree), but people should know if they’re really getting what they pay for.
Hey, Rep. Brandon Dillion, face the facts my man. Unemployment can’t be improved overnight and walls might as well be put up around the city of Detroit so we can send all of our prisoners there to make ii an Escape From New York type of atmosphere to improve the scene. This IS the most pressing issue in the state right now. Time to do your job and make sure every one of your constituents has their proper beer rights.
