There's no beverage of moderation, only the practice of moderation.

Understanding Moderation

Part of responsible drinking is understanding that a standard drink of beer, distilled spirits and wine each contains the same amount of alcohol. It's not what you drink, it's how much that counts.

NEW OREGON LAW PERMITS SUNDAY SALES OF DISTILLED SPIRITS

February 27, 2002 07:00 PM
WASHINGTON, D.C. – As states look for innovative ways to raise revenues, Oregon modernized its liquor laws today by permitting Sunday sales of distilled spirits, according to the Distilled Spirits Council of the United States. Oregon becomes the 23rd state to permit Sunday sales, but the first major change in decades. “This is an appropriate way for states to raise new revenue without raising taxes,” said Peter Cressy, President of the Distilled Spirits Council of the United States, the trade association for the nation’s distillers supporting the change. “For consumers, it means convenience. For industry, it means equal access for distilled spirits, beer and wine consumers.” The Council estimates that the law could generate between $3.5 and $5 million in new tax revenue for the state. The change which became law today goes into effect immediately. “In state after state, there are antiquated laws that discriminate against distilled spirits consumers. The Council is continuing to advocate for equitable treatment in the marketplace,” said Cressy.
