After all, fish don’t drink in it.


In the case of your summer’s entertainment in 2013, otherwise known as NABC v Health Department, it wouldn’t be a genuine local issue if we didn’t hear from Tim “Eco Warrior” Deatrick … and we did, just last night.

get your facts straight, under 21CFR part 123 the health dept. does have jurisdiction over beer as a food. Appeal all you want you wont win

Grammar carnage aside, you’ll see in the photo (top) that if one searches for the word “beer” in section 123, there are no hits. That’s because section 123 (below) has to do with fish and fisheries, not beer.

However, Tim’s perennial confusion should not blind us to the fact that beer is preferable to water, seeing as fish … well, you know the rest.
