Some liquor commissions object.

In Colorado he was told, “Pull the beer from the market, or we suspend your license.”

In Michigan, the liquor commission called his beer, “detrimental to the health, safety, and welfare of the general public.”

“Do you really want to live in a country where government bureaucrats … can censor whatever they don’t like?” asks Caruso. “If you want free speech, then you have to respect that in others.”

So he sued, but that wasn’t the end of it.

Another label of his was just banned for being, “inappropriate … undignified, immodest … bad taste.”

What do they consider so offensive? Watch the above video to find out.
