It has been reported that Five Wives Vodka, made by Ogden's Own distillery in Utah, has been banned from store shelves by the state of Idaho because it was deemed to be offensive to Mormons. Polygamy Porter is still available in the state.

On a related note, the sale of Dirty Bastard Ale, one of the best beers from Founders, one of the best Michigan micro-brewers, was blocked in Alabama back in April. Fat Bastard Wines and Raging Bitch beer are still sold.

Any thoughts? These examples seem silly, but how far is too far when it comes to alcohol brand names? Should states be involved in policing names at all? Or should the market just sort it out?
