Brickbat: There's No Such Thing as Free Beer


Kartos /

The Patriarch Craft Beer House and Lawn in Edmond, Oklahoma, promised free beer to striking teachers—a beer called Respect Party, to be exact. But an official with the state's Alcoholic Beverage Laws Enforcement Commission saw a Facebook post on the offer and didn't recognize the name of the beer. Investigators raided the beer house and seized all Respect Party beer for not having the brand properly registered in the state and issued Patriarch a citation.
