Scott Walker is down with pedal pubs
Coming soon to Wisconsin.
Given Wisconsin's well-earned reputation for drinking, you would've thought the state had pedal pubs long ago, right?

Wrong. The booze-powered bars on wheels we love to hate were decriminalized in the Land of Cheese just last Friday when Gov. Scott Walker signed a bill legalizing them.
According to an AP report, Wisconsin state law previously prohibited people from consuming alcohol in vehicles, including pedal pubs.
But before you start daydreaming about reading stories like this next summer with datelines from Milwaukee, know that the legislation signed by Walker doesn't allow pedal pubbers to get crazy. The AP reports that riders will have to keep their blood alcohol level below .02. For a person who weighs roughly 160 pounds, that's less than one drink!
O'Douls, anyone? Or better yet, come to Minnesota and enjoy pedal pubbing free from sobering government regulations.
