A Question About 3.2 Beer…

This comes from a recent visitor to… I really don’t know the answer. Anyone?

I have a buddy who insists that 3.2 beer that you can buy at SA or whatever is the same beer as you can get in the liquor stores. He proports the brewing companies just pay the fine to the state for the alcohol level being incorect. In essence, he says Mn counts on this money from the fines to add to our budget. Is there any truth in that?

    Love the site … and love beer.

    Check this out: It doesn’t answer it completely, but I think enough to throw cold water on the idea that it’s full beer sold at stores. C’mon, from the selection, do you think it’s full beer.

    Another reasons to have a 3.2 beer: You can sell only that at the State Fair.

    It sure wouldn’t be the first time the corrupt beer industry strong-armed the state to look the other way about something–particularly in the distribution end of things.

    If you ever drank 3.2 beer, you’d know that its not the same as regular. Shoot, the stuff makes you feel like you’ve got the tolerance of a Russain sailor.

    My Dad worked at the old Schmidt Brewery for 40 years – NO, 3.2 is not the same as regular.
