Ban the Bigger, Better Bottle Bill

Hat tip to my brother-in-law Scott for sending me this link to The Foaming Head, regarding new NYS beer bottle laws, which would — in effect — require all brewers, in and out of New York State, to use a NEW YORK STATE-SPECIFIC UPC SYMBOL.

Needless to say, this expensive process would be cost-prohibitive to many out of state brewers, who might just decide to pull up stakes out of NYS altogether rather than adding an expense of a NEW YORK STATE-SPECIFIC UPC SYMBOL!!!!!!

Please go to the link, and then contact your assemblyman (you can search by zip code).

This short-sighted, get rich quick bill CANNOT pass.
