Dogfish Head Alehouse in Gaithersburg sued after patron drinks, drives, & kills

News reports (blog at the Washington Post and Fox TV stations in Washington D.C. and Baltimore) are covering the lawsuit filed Monday against the Dogfish Head Alehouse in Gaithersburg, Md. after it allegedly let a patron buy and consume seventeen Corona Lights and three shots of liquor over a six-hour period; said patron then drove a Range Rover into the back of a Jeep on Interstate 270, killing a ten-year-old girl in the Jeep.

The lawsuit opens--once again--the long-running debate between the responsibilities of bar employees versus personal accountability.

But note that the Dogfish Head in question allegedly was serving this person Corona Lights--not World Wide Stout or any DFH beers or spirits.
