Peter Hitchens in The Mail on Sunday expresses his objection to regulations on the type of glasses in which beer can be served.

He gives the example of Andrea Schultz, who runs a bierkeller in Worcester, who, he says, should be able to sell her Austrian beer 1-litre mugs. He says this is none of the state’s business and no other country in Europe would interfere.
