Beer Law: Nothing Is Certain But Beer And Taxes

Beer Law Update! According to the industry advocacy group Beer Institute, on average, more than 40 percent of what Americas pay goes toward federal, state and local taxes. You pay excise to consumption to sales taxes, as well as the normal business taxes. That makes taxes the most expensive ingredient. In addition, the U.S. beer industry contributes nearly $253 billion to our economy. Beer supports 1.75 million American jobs. The Craft Beverage Modernization and Tax Reform Act of 2015 (H.R. 2903/S. 1562) was introduced in the 114th Congress. It is sponsored by Senators Ron Wyden (D-OR) and Roy Blunt (R-MO) and Representatives...

Ohio Beer Law Changes Tomorrow!

Tomorrow is a big day for Ohio Beer Law. The Governor signed House Bill 37, into law earlier this year. The law will lift the current 12 percent alcohol by volume (ABV) ceiling. The new law goes into effect Wednesday, August 31st. Under the new law, there's no cap.  Beers are expected to be around 30 percent ABV which is far below what you would find in whiskey. Rep. Dan Ramos, a Lorain Democrat, has introduced several bills raising the cap, which was raised from 6 to 12 percent in 2002. Ramos pointed to Ohio's alcohol limits as a reason Stone Brewing chose to...

Proud Founding Member of the American Association of Premier DUI Attorneys

I am a proud founding member of the Association of Premier DUI Attorneys. When people need a DUI Attorney, the biggest challenge is knowing whether or not an attorney truly has the skills, knowledge, training, tools, resources, and strategies that are needed to successfully resolve and win drunk driving cases. Countless attorneys handle impaired driving cases,  but only a very small percentage have the skills, knowledge, training, tools, resources, and strategies that are needed to successfully resolve and win cases. Unfortunately for the public, even attorneys who have been practicing law for many years and devote a significant portion of their...

Should Ohio Increase The Limits On Alcohol In Its Beer?

Ohio Needs Stronger Beer! State Rep. Dan Ramos, D-Lorain, will re-introduce a proposal this year to increase the legal limit on the amount of alcohol allowed in beer sold in Ohio.  Once the bill is submitted and approved it will receive a dedicated House Bill Number.  This can take 1-3 months. Right now, the limit is 12 percent alcohol by volume. Ramos' proposal would boost that to 21 percent.  The proposal has been previously introduced in the state legislature before but failed to gain approval. Ohio craft beer drinkers have long complained that they can't buy such high-alcohol specialty brews.  For Ohio growing...

DUI Science: Are Gastric Bypass Patients More Susceptible to a DUI?

According to the results of a new study in the February issue of the Journal of the American College of Surgeons, the dramatic changes that occur as a result of gastric bypass surgery can cause some people to overindulge when using alcohol thereby increasing their risk for a DUI. As cited at by Science Daily (linked HERE): Studies have shown that gastric bypass patients often find it difficult adjusting to physical and psychological changes after the procedure. An increased risk of depression, alcoholism, and other substance abuse issues for this patient population led researchers to take a more in-depth look at how...

Ohio’s Love of Alcohol: Pre-Civil War

Approximately 150,000 years ago Austalopithecus Man discovered that life was just a little bit more livable when he sucked on some of the fruit that lay rotting and fermenting in the hot, pre-history sun.[1]  By 12,000 BC, the Sumerians agree to live in close proximity for the purpose of pooling resources, growing crops and telling the first mother-in-law jokes.[2]  This started what we call civilization. "The search for unpolluted drinking water is as old as civilization itself. As soon as there were mass human settlements, waterborne diseases like dysentery became a crucial population bottleneck. For much of human history, the...

Dead Drunk from Brew Dog

[caption id="" align="alignright" width="180" caption="Image via Wikipedia"][/caption] BrewDog, a microbrewery out of Scotland created the world's strongest beer at 55% alcohol. And while that was sure to raise a few eyebrows, the company decided to go a step further and place the limited edition of 12 bottles inside the taxidermied bodies of squirrels, stoats and a hare.  The bottles—which cost more than $700 each—sold out in less than four (4) hours, although the controversy they are raising is sure to last as long as the preserved bodies of the beer-cozies.
