Katie Edwards Orders Gut-Busting Beer Servings
The guess is that Rep. Katie Edwards didnt run her latest bill by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who has tapped out super-sized soft drinks at 16 ounces at restaurants, concession stands and other eateries in his city.
Edwards, a Plantation Democrat, has popped the top on a bill, House Bill 715, which would double the single serving size of bottled or canned beer in Florida, from currently allowed 32 ounces to a more gut-busting 64 ounces.
All malt beverages packaged in individual containers sold or offered for sale by vendors at retail in this state shall be in individual containers containing 64 ounces, or a lesser size containing no more than 32 ounces, of such malt beverages, the bill states.
Florida craft brewers have been pushing for some time the change -- for as the Tampa Bay Times reported a year ago --in part because the standard 64-ounce growler (currently illegal) is popular with consumers for refills and as collectibles.
