A new California law will allow college students under the legal drinking age of 21 to drink alcohol in class as long as they are enrolled in a beer brewing or wine-making course, The San Francisco Chronicle reported. Further, the students are permitted only to taste, not to swallow, and that has led to the legislation being called the "sip and spit" bill. Instructors who teach wine and other alcohol-related classes pushed for the measure, signed into law Monday, so that their students could have the full experience of learning about various beverages.
