FTA: "I have exhausted my knowledge of this subject," Carney said. "When someone hands me a beer I don't ask how it was made, I just drink it."

Those have to be the truest words ever spoken by man.

I don't drink, but I think it's cool the President brews his own beer and takes it on the road with him. I would imagine stopping at a bar or something when he was in the mood for one would be problematic, and running into a package store or something would be weird....this way if he wants a beer, he doesn't have to go far. Smart man.

Transporting alcohol across State borders might actually be illegal. Let's give the derpers a few hours to figure that one out.

Are you accusing the President of bootlegging? Ooh, I hope he gets in a car (well, bus) chase with a local sheriff's deputy and his dim-witted son, with Michelle in the front seat, who he affectionately calls "Frog", because she looks like a little frog.

Well I assume you need a permit/license to transport booze across a State line. I'm Canadian, you can actually get in trouble for crossing a provincial border with beer but it is rarely enforced.

Not exactly. You half to declare it and it is subject to a duty (over 12 beers I think).

Certain states have some f*cked up blue laws or laws that basically say you can't 'export' your homebrew much beyond your home. I have also read some stories about people trying to drive a bit of homebrew into Utah and they got in trouble. So yeah, this will go full derp when the freepers start dissecting every single states' alcohol laws on the President's campaign trail.

"The beer comes in two varieties, light and dark, Carney said. He has personally sampled the lighter brew, and declared it "refreshing.""

Light and dark, eh? He should call them "Draught of My Father," and "The Audacity of Hops."

In perhaps the most startling revelation so far in Obama's three-day bus tour across Iowa, it was revealed this morning that the White House brews its own beer, and that the presidential bus is stocked with bottles of that beer.

This is mad brews... for Obama.

The Iowa law would allow the import of 4 liters of beer into the state for personal consumption. That is roughly 12 beers. More than that and Fartbongo might have broken the law.

Looks like it's still perfectly legal to bring it into the state and give it away, though.

123.22 STATE MONOPOLY.
The division has the exclusive right of importation into the state
of all forms of alcoholic liquor, except as otherwise provided in
this chapter, and a person shall not import alcoholic liquor, except
that an individual of legal age may import and have in the
individual's possession an amount of alcoholic liquor not exceeding
one liter or, in the case of alcoholic liquor personally obtained
outside the United States, four liters for personal consumption only
in a private home or other private accommodation.
A distillery shall
not sell alcoholic liquor within the state to any person but only to
the division, except as otherwise provided in this chapter. This
section vests in the division exclusive control within the state as
purchaser of all alcoholic liquor sold by distilleries within the
state or imported, except beer and wine, and except as otherwise
provided in this chapter. The division shall receive alcoholic
liquor on a bailment system for resale by the division in the manner
set forth in this chapter. The division shall act as the sole
wholesaler of alcoholic liquor to class "E" liquor control licensees.

Actually looks like over 1L might be breaking the law. I always find these things hard to interpret

With the reference to distilleries and "alcoholic liquor" I'm wondering if that only covers things like whiskey, vodak and the like and not beer. Many states have separate rules for beer and for distilled spirits.

I'm sorry to hear that. When you grow up with an alcoholic dad, even if he's not the violent, abusive kind, you just don't touch the stuff when you're older. Though unlike some people I know who grew up in similar circumstances, I don't go all Carrie Nation on people and demand no one drink ever, whether I'm around or not. I hate assholes like that.

Sorry to threadjack with my dysfunctional family problems, go back to comparing Obama to Burt Reynolds.

That would be my impression as well. There's also several references in the code to distinct licenses for beer vs. liquor.

You are probably right but their definition doesn't clear it up any if the beer is stronger than 5% which is typical for a good beer IMHO.

5. "Alcoholic liquor" or "intoxicating liquor" means the
varieties of liquor defined in subsections 3 and 33 which contain
more than five percent of alcohol by weight, beverages made as
described in subsection 7 which beverages contain more than five
percent of alcohol by weight but which are not wine as defined in
subsection 37, and every other liquid or solid, patented or not,
containing spirits and every beverage obtained by the process
described in subsection 37 containing more than seventeen percent
alcohol by weight or twenty-one and twenty-five hundredths percent of
alcohol by volume, and susceptible of being consumed by a human
being, for beverage purposes. Alcohol manufactured in this state for
use as fuel pursuant to an experimental distilled spirits plant
permit or its equivalent issued by the federal bureau of alcohol,
tobacco and firearms is not an "alcoholic liquor".


One think is clear is that this is the most poorly written law I have ever read.

I got my alcoholic tendencies from my alcoholic father. I guess it effects people differently.
