Petitioning the State to Do Away With the ABV Cap

Posted By on Wed, Dec 26, 2012 at 10:07 AM

The right to petition the government seems like the most popular part of our Bill of Rights these days (except for that whole business about the arms and bears and all that).

There's an effort under way to get our fair state to kill the cap on the alcohol-by-volume ratio (ABV). Currently, the sale of beers containing more than 12 percent alcohol is not permitted in Ohio.

According to Topher Michael of Columbus, "The people of the Great State of Ohio believes (sic) that this cap is completely arbitrary. It does not in anyway (sic) define a beer."

He's got 230 people on his side as of Dec. 25, with a goal of 1,000 by the new year.

A roundup of liquor laws by state shows a surprising disparity among our geography.
