A shave an a haircut, or brewski

Barbershop owner Thomas Martin wants to bring back his cut-and-a-beer service.

Martin has 11 shops in the Grand Rapids, Michigan, area.

He used to offer customers one complimentary brewski until authorities told him to stop.

Martin tells the Grand Rapids Press a cold one was a nice extra for his customers.

Now, he's looking to officials in the state capital of Lansing for help.

A spokesman for the attorney general says the cut-and-brew situation is under review.

But officials note state law doesn't permit consumption of alcohol when people are paying for other services.
