Here in Georgia we are currently trying to sort out the cryptic beverage laws that cover the sale of growlers. Colorado, a bastion of craft beer in the United States is having to decipher its on weird laws. Apparently it is illegal to sell beer LESS than 4% abv. You read that correctly. LESS than 4%.
The law stems back to an antiquated pre-prohibition statute that was mean to make it harder to alcohol to flow post prohibition in the State of Colorado. The beer at time was 4% or less. Lawmakers at the time weren’t considering an Avery Mephistopheles imperial stout when the law was inacted.
A new revision to that law passed in 2009, requires the laws surrounding the sale of beer & liquor to be followed EXACTLY as written. Which would make it illegal to sell beer less than 4% or session beer in bars & restaurants illegal. Ain’t laws grand?
