APPLETON, WI (WTAQ) - City leaders in Appleton will consider allowing pedal pubs to operate.

Back in December, Governor Scott Walker signed a law which allows people to bring their own beer on the pedal-powered bicycles.

Right now only Milwaukee and Madison have these taverns on wheels.

How it works is riders pay a fee to rent one of the 12 to 16 seats on the bike. Riders are then able to bring up to 36 ounces of beer on the bike.

Appleton Alderman Tim Trauger tells FOX 11 he thinks the idea could work in the city. However, as a member of the safety and licensing committee he and others would have concerns about where and how the bier bike would operate.

Trauger says he knows of at least one person who's expressed interest in starting up a pedal pub downtown.

The issue will be discussed at next Wednesday's safety and licensing committee meeting.
