New York State Liquor Authority stated that the label had originally been banned at a staff level . For one of their special holiday beers, Ridgeway brewers had Gary Lippencourt paint them a Santa.Maine took a bit longer, perhaps waiting for the lawsuit to be fully filed, perhaps examining the evidence, or maybe they were just waiting for fallout from New York s reversal.

Connecticut s reasoning, the same reason which was paraphrased by New York and Maine, was that depicting such images appealed to children, and could lead to an increase in underage drinking. Either way, on December 22, 2006, the Maine Bureau of Liquor Enforcement mailed Shelton to inform him of their decision to reverse the ruling against Santa s Butt Winter Porter.

Dan Shelton retained Albany based attorney George Carpinello to bring suit against New York.In Maine, the Maine Civil Liberties Union (MCLU) helped the Shelton Brothers file suit against the Maine Bureau of Liquor Enforcement (MBLE) on those very same grounds.
