Fed. Court Rules Against Cold Beer In Grocery Stores

June 17, 2014
By

To the dismay of some cold beer will remain only sold in package liquor stores in Indiana.

A federal judge ruled in favor this week of current state law that prohibits cold beer from being distributed from grocery and convenience stores.

The Indiana Petroleum Marketers and Convenience Store Association filed the lawsuit last year saying current law was in violation of the U.S. Constitution by favoring one type of business over another.

The federal court ruled that allowing grocery and convenience stores to sell cold beer would increase sales and result in more difficulty for Indiana Excise Police to enforce alcohol laws.
