There are some pretty funky laws still on the books when it comes to what we imbibe. One of those laws was repealed on August 31 — an Ohio mandate stating that beer brewers were not allowed to brew any beer over 12 percent alcohol by volume, or ABV. This was a thorn in many a brewer’s side because beer potency is part of their creative freedom.
After a successful campaign, the law is gone and brewers are free to make their beer as strong as they damn well please. One brewer may have taken it a little far. We’ll let you be the judge.
