Baby Beer Label Battle

Democratic Gov. Maggie Hassan of NH vetoed a
measure that would have allowed some images
of minors on alcoholic beverage labels as long as
they didn't encourage young people to drink.

The issue came to a head over Founder's
Breakfast Stout.  The beer's label depicts a
chubby, Norman Rockwell-esque baby scooping
oatmeal into his mouth. Hassan said allowing the
images could undermine the state's efforts to
fight underage drinking.

Opponents to the governor said the veto is an
overreach and noted that neighboring
Massachusetts, Maine and Vermont sell the beer
and that no reasonable person would believe that
the label is intended to appeal to minors in
anyway. They also pointed out that a New
Hampshire-produced craft beer, Smuttynose
Baltic Porter, would have to come off the
shelves because its label shows Father Time and
a baby.  The federal government already
prohibits alcohol labeling or advertising that
targets minors. The vetoed bill would have given
the state's Liquor Commission discretion to
approve or deny labels.

The New Hampshire House then pushed back on
Gov. Maggie Hassan's veto as they reached the
two-thirds threshold to override it.. If the Senate
agrees, the veto will be officially overridden.
