Ohio Senate leaders are expected to vote in the coming weeks on a measure that would increase the amount of alcohol allowed in beer from 12 to 15 percent.

The measure is included in H.B. 444 which allows certain liquor permit holders to provide free samples of beer, wine and liquor to paying customers of their establishments.
