Ever seen one of these pedal pub contraptions and thought, “yes, that’ll be fun?” Soon, you’ll be able to hop on and enjoy your hops thanks to a Michigan law signed by Governor Rick Snyder on Wednesday. In Michigan, passengers will be allowed to drink alcohol on pedal-powered vehicles.
Local governments still have the discretion to prohibit drinking on them, but the framework is in place for a whole new kind of fun. Pedal pub operators can not be under the influence of alcohol and also need to have proof of liability insurance.
Beer and wine will be the only drinks allowed (no liquor), and they won’t be able to serve you while on the pedal pub, just take your drink with you.
