Proposed Michigan Law Would Require Bars to ‘Measure Up’

Michigan lawmakers are considering a bill that would require pubs and bars that sell beer by the pint to actually serve – wait for it – a full 16 oz. pint of beer.

If passed, the new legislation would amend the Michigan Liquor Control Act to make it an offense to advertise pints served in what’s commonly known as ‘cheater pint’ glasses. Theses pint-style glasses typically hold 12 or 14 ounces.

Bar owners would either have to discontinue referring to smaller serving sizes as pints, or replace their glasses.

The bill is currently in a State House committee.

Another proposed law would allow some Michigan bars to stay open until 4 am.
