Calif. Drinking Age Lowered for Sampling

California Gov. Jerry Brown signed into law on Monday a bill that changes the drinking ageā€¦or at least, the tasting age. The law allows students that are at least 18 years of age to taste wine and beer, as long as it is part of either a wine-making or beer-brewing course and the students spit out the alcohol after tasting it.
