Education not Legislation!

A recent post in one of my very favourite blogs, (Washington Beer Blog) put up an article about new legislation which passed from the Washington State Liquor Control Board about signage in bars.  It turns our it will now be illegal for a bar in the state of Washington to have more that a certain amount of alcohol signage visible from outside in an effort to reduce under-age drinking.

This was a great little article and sparked a conversation about the value of passing legislation which restricts the rights of the proprietor in favor of passing the values of a smaller group of people (whether right or wrongly held) upon the public at large.

Like to hear anyone chime in with their opinion if they are interested.  Post a comment here.

And then pour one for me!
