There Oughta be a Law!

Why is Kahlua stronger in Ohio? Why is beer warmer in Indiana? Why do drinks look like they’re being made behind a weird, blurry pane of glass in Utah? Tackling these questions and more is Jarrett Dieterle, author of “Give Me Liberty and Give Me a Drink” who talks with the band about weird booze laws and how some outdated legislation may finally be fading away. ———————————————— Please SUBSCRIBE and RATE the show if you can.
