Utah’s Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control told FOX 13 it is studying the impact of a ballot initiative that modernizes Oklahoma’s liquor laws, which could have a significant impact on our state’s beer laws.
Oklahoma voters overwhelmingly voted in favor of State Question 792, which allows for wine and full-strength beer to be sold in grocery and convenience stores. The measure goes into effect in 2018, FOX 13 sister-station KFOR in Oklahoma City reported.
“DABC is aware of the Oklahoma passage of the initiative to allow heavy beer and wine to be sold in grocery stores and convenience stores. We have also been aware, for some time now, that passage of this initiative could possibly result in breweries eliminating 3.2 beer altogether,” said DABC spokesman Terry Wood. “At this time, we are analyzing the impact of the vote and have heard nothing from producers of 3.2 beer.”
