Beer with baby on label gets official OK in Michigan
Grand Rapids — A brewery’s beer featuring a baby on the label has official approval in Michigan.
The Grand Rapids Press reports the Breakfast Stout label was pulled in August and replaced with an empty chair and a note that the oatmeal-slurping child had “left the crib for a bit.”
The change was made after a Michigan Liquor Control Commission investigator discovered the label wasn’t registered with the state despite the beer having been sold on shelves for about a decade. It’s made by Grand Rapids-based Founders Brewery Co.
The newspaper says the brewery was fined $300 and removed all bottles of Breakfast Stout from its taproom, but they weren’t pulled from store shelves. Founders now has the OK from the state. The label and bottles made a comeback in December.
