Washington DC Looking to UP The Single-Beer Ban

This should be an interesting story to follow.  Following a single-beer ban by DC Council, distributors responded with 2-pack ^ 3-pack beer packaging to beat the ban…well not this new packaging is under fire.  This from the HuffingtonPost:

In February 2009, the D.C. Council prohibited stores in the Ward 6 section of Washington -- an area that stretches from around the U.S. Capitol to the Anacostia River -- from selling single beers without the permission of local alcohol regulators. Several other neighborhoods had already adopted the policy.

Beer distributors immediately responded by offering two-packs and three-packs. Now a local neighborhood council wants stores to stop selling those, too.
