Speaking of weird rules pertaining to beer, I just read a story about the alcohol control authority in New Jersey dreaming up some good ones. Some of these are ridiculous IMO. Note — these aren’t laws enacted by legislation, they are the control authority rules. Authoritarian State at its finest. Here are a few the article listed:
All patrons of a brewery must take a detailed tour of that brewery before purchasing any alcohol for consumption on or off site. The tour may not include sampling beer. ("A licensee must provide such a tour prior to allowing any on-premise consumption, including but not limited to consumer sampling.")
They had something similar to this in a brewery just outside of Savannah, GA. IIRC, it was a state law and since I haven't been there in quite a few years, I don't know if it is still in effect. You came in, paid for a brewery tour and they would then give you a couple pints at the bar after the tour. You could then purchase packaged beer to take out when you left the facility. Ironically, if you were in downtown Savannah, you could go into a brewery there (such as Moon River) order a beer at the bar and then get a "to go" plastic glass of beer that you could carry with you as you walked down the street. The city of Savannah has what's known as a Designated Outdoor Refreshment Area (DORA) that permits this, but it is restricted to certain areas of the city.
We have DORA's in Ohio for communities which was enacted in 2015 prior to the Republican Convention in Cleveland in 2016 (so they could take their booze out on the streets of the city). The DORA areas were then permitted to be expanded for all Ohio communities in 2022 as a part of the homebrewing legislation I worked on. Obviously, there are some legal hoops to jump through to set up a DORA.
