Today's alcohol news

Booze news in the good ol' U.S.A.

1. The annual Oktoberfest in Snowmass, Utah may have their alcohol license revoked meaning brats without beer. Why? Because it's Utah. Lets have a groan from the Germans. Story

2. Oklahoma City is considering licensing a gun range to serve alcohol. Why? Because Oklahoma has the most liberal gun-ownership laws, but it's interesting they're real stringent on alcohol laws. I can't see any potential problem here. Story

3. Americans will spend $11 billion on beer this summer. I'm doing my part. Story

4. In a surprising bit of sanity from a government body Ohio will start allowing free samples of beer and wine to be given out. This way you can actually try before you buy! Story

5. Oregon Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris in "beer" cans is coming. Will it be any good? Someone else try it and let me know. Story

6. Sonoma County visits China to convince them to buy Sonoma wines. Why not? Everybody else thinks the Chinese will buy anything and everything. Story
