Spotted cow causes brew-ha-ha

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - November 26, 2009

Spotted Cow is a beer from a Wisconsin microbrewery.

But it isn't licensed for sale outside the state.

Investigators from the New York State Liquor Authority confiscated 50 cases of Spotted Cow from the Mad River Bar & Grille in Manhattan.

A liquor authority spokesman tells the Wisconsin State Journal alcohol sold in the Empire State must come from a wholesale distributor.

The liquor authority could yank the bar's license for selling the unauthorized brew.

No comment yet from the tavern's owner.
