DFW Readers: Hear Me Talk About Loony Liquor Laws

|

If you missed my talk on "Loony Liquor Laws" last month, here is your second chance. I will be speaking on the same subject at the University of North Texas this evening, courtesy of Young Americans for Liberty. The discussion will include Jester King Brewery's successful First Amendment challenge to state restrictions on beer marketing. Among other things, those rules forced the Austin brewery to censor the names of its beers (see right, where the word strong in "Thrash Metal Farmhouse Strong Ale" is blacked out) and barred it from telling customers where they could buy its products.

The details: 5 p.m., Thursday, March 15, Wooten Hall, University of North Texas, 1121 Union Circle, Denton, Texas.
