Pitchers of beer
Despite an attempt to overturn the rule, the ban on pitchers is still intact.
Although state law states that pitchers of beer can only be sold to a party of two or more, Braintree prohibits any sale of any alcohol beverages in pitchers.
Reasoning: The stricter status followed an alcohol-related death in 1983 at the Ground Round in Braintree. The victim was a 20-year-old Weymouth woman who was riding on the hood of a car in the parking lot, then fell off and was dragged under the car. The driver allegedly had several free beers as the result of a trivia game at the bar.
