MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The odds are, this new law can't help but catch on quickly among Wisconsin residents.
Governor Jim Doyle has signed a bill allowing grocery and liquor stores to hand out up to six ounces of free beer samples.
That's about half a can of beer that can be made available to anyone of legal drinking age.
State law had allowed wineries to offer up to six ounces of free samples.
Sponsors of the bill contended it was only natural to allow the same promotional offers for beer in a state known for its beer-drinking.
And now it's the law.
