Barbershop Beer No More
(2008-03-25)
(wgvu) - GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) - The owner of Jude's Barbershops will
continue offering haircuts and shaves to his customers but no more
free beer.
The Michigan attorney general's office has ruled Thomas Martin's
11 shops in the Grand Rapids area may not hand out a brew with each
cut.
The ruling says Martin needs a liquor license if he wants to
continue giving away beer.
Martin tells The Grand Rapids Press for a story Tuesday he was
just continuing an old-fashioned complimentary service for his
customers that started years ago.
Police in Kent and Ottawa counties had told him that handing out
free beer violated local and state laws.
