Beer sampling bill passes Senate
Madison - The state Senate today passed a bill allowing two 3-ounce samples of beer to be given to adults in liquor stores and grocery stores.The bill's sponsor, Sen. Pat Krietlow (D-Eau Claire), said it would give brewers the same free-sample rights as sellers of wine. It would require the samples to be handed out between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m."It has been done responsibly for years with wines," Kreitlow said.The state Assembly could act on the same bill later today. That vote would send it
to Gov. Jim Doyle.
