The Denver Post - - NEWS -

Fresh­man Rep. Joe Cun­ning­ham, D-S.C., made a rookie mis­take Fri­day when he at­tempted to bring a six-pack of craft beer onto the floor of the House of Rep­re­sen­ta­tives.

Cun­ning­ham laughed off the in­ci­dent af­ter he was stopped. He later ex­plained that he was try­ing to bring beer from lo­cal brew­eries in his home state to Rep. Peter DeFazio, D-ore., co-chair­man of the House Small Brew­ers Cau­cus.

Only water is al­lowed on the House floor.
