The nation is full of “outdated, bizarre, and laughably loony” laws linked to alcohol. That’s how Jarrett Dieterle, director of commercial freedom at the R Street Institute, describes the circumstances that prompted him to write his new book. It’s titled Give Me Liberty and Give Me a Drink! 65 Cocktails to Protest America’s Most Outlandish Alcohol Laws. Dieterle details some of the crazy laws and the cocktails he’s concocted to honor them. Dieterle explains why he hopes the book will help lead to a more sensible set of alcohol regulations across the country.
