'Chronicle' on Jester King Suit

On Tuesday, I posted about the Jester King/Zax/Authentic Beverages lawsuit against the state of Texas. Today, my former Austin Chronicle news staff colleague Richard Whittaker had his own report. It is, of course, well written. I especially like this analogy from Richard, which perfectly sums up the stupidity of the Texas law requiring that any beer stronger than 4% alcohol be arbitrarily labeled as "ale":
"Unfortunately, that is like saying all large pies are apple – it is simply not true."
