Beer regulations of a different breed...

So it's not the beer itself...

...but the name of the beer that causes drunken brawls?

Though you have to love this bit:
Mr Carmichael said the name would be inappropriate if it were a low-priced drink aimed at youngsters.

But he said it was an award-winning beer which is bought by "discerning drinkers who appreciate its quality and who drink it responsibly".
Yes-- 11-year-olds can't appreciate the historical subtlety of Skull Splitter Ale, but seasoned veterans can.
