Woo! Yay! Rah! Now the plastic glass of overpriced Miller Lite at the Fair can jump from 3.2 to 4% (or whatever it is…)!!! Seriously, though, this could potentially open the doors for our craft brew friends who don’t make 3.2 beers. I’ve never really paid attention to the state of beer at the State Fair (other than the homebrew contest, but that’s another thing entirely), but this can’t be a bad thing:
Fair officials announced Friday they will ditch the long tradition of wimpy 3.2-percent-alcohol beer and allow vendors to sell stronger beer to thirsty fairgoers when the event opens in August.
