More Michigan law: Beer pints are already 16 ounces in Michigan

It's not widely known, but beer drinkers who don't receive their fair share of ale can actually file a complaint through Michigan's Weights and Measures Act.

So if you're thinking what you just were served was less than 16 ounces- you can get your day in court.

And  new legislation - which may already be addressed by Michigan's Consumer Protection Act - will give an additional amount of support for protecting beer drinkers. Article here. 

Side note: I am a little interested in this, just from a brewing standpoint. I have a new-ish hobby of beer brewing, which I love. We're not kegging the beer yet, we're bottling it. And some  bottles are below 12 ounces. It's a small variation, though.
