SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) _ Vaune Dillmann says the wording on his bottle caps was just a clever play on the name of the Northern
California town where he brews his beer -- Weed.
But federal alcohol regulators think differently. They have ordered Dillmann's Mount Shasta Brewing Company to stop selling beer bottles with caps that say ``Try Legal Weed.'' They say the message on the caps amounts to a drug reference and could ``mislead consumers about the characteristics of the alcoholic beverage.''
Dillmann scoffs at the notion, saying it's just the town's name.
Signs posted on the way out of town read ``Temporarily Out of Weed'' and ``100 Percent Pure Weed.'' And Dillmann says tourists like to snap pictures of the school bus with its ``Weed High'' sign.
