LEBANON, Ohio (AP) — Beer is making a return engagement at a county fair in southwest Ohio.

Beer, once banned at the Warren County Fair in Lebanon, will be flowing for a second year in a row when the fair returns this week.

Warren County commissioners voted two-to-one to allow beer sales at the fair again this year.

The fair runs Tuesday through Saturday.

Commissioner Dave Young cast the dissenting vote Tuesday. According to the Dayton Daily News (, Young says his "no" vote wasn't a moral judgment.

Commissioner Pat South says she voted "yes" because the state fair now allows alcohol sales and the beer distributor gave the fair board $10,000 last year.
