Mmm, beer

The DCist has a terrific post today on the battle being waged to ban the sale of single beer in the H Street neighborhood north of Capitol Hill. Apparently, Mt. Pleasant passed the ban already and then Ward 4 councilman Fenty wanted one city wide that didn’t pass due to lack of scrutiny. I for one am all in favor. Just its effect on litter would surely be worth it. Now, I know people like to jump to conclusions so I want it on the record: I love beer. And I often find the artwork on single cans of Old English to be spectacular. Having said that I believe there is a significant correlation between single beer can sales and litter. So do we want the ban for Petworth as well?
