Store Spirits Sampling May Be Legalized in Wis.

Liquor stores may soon be able to serve you a shot of liquor for free under a bill that would equalize the free-sample playing field in Wisconsin. Under current law, retailers with a Class A license can offer customers tasting samples of beer and wine, but liquor is off limits. That could change under a bill with bipartisan support sponsored by Rep. Joel Kleefisch, R-Oconomowoc, that would allow the same retailers to offer up to three .5 ounce liquor samples to customers a day between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m. (The Cap Times)
