  • Sorry, Indiana: Proposal To Allow Cold Beer Sales Dies In Senate

Cold beer is kept in coolers behind the counter at a Ricker's convenience store in Columbus, Ind., Thursday, March 23, 2017.

Matt Norris, on behalf of the Indiana Petroleum Marketers and Convenience Store Association, said the request was simple.

"One of the questions our clerks are asked on a daily basis is, 'Where's your cold beer?"

House Public Policy Chairman Ben Smaltz (R-Auburn) says he's open to extending Sunday hours in future years, but says expanded alcohol access will bring at least some increase in alcohol-related crimes.

Grocery stores, pharmacies, and gas stations in IN will have to wait in order to sell you cold beer. But only package liquor stores and some restaurants can sell carryout cold beer.

"The coalitions were built and no one seems to be running away from the coalitions", said Andy Downs, director of the Fort Wayne-based Mike Downs Center for Indiana Politics.

A bill to protect in firefighters and give them earlier retirement has passed a senate committee.

But Sen. Ron Alting (R-Lafayette), the bill's author, says alcohol isn't like other products. "Our customers want cold beer".

IN is the only state that regulates the sale of beer by temperature.

Social media had been peppered with ads in recent days supporting the bills.

The unamended bill will be available for passage by the full Senate Monday.

Jay Ricker, the owner of the Ricker's chain of convenience stores-part of Ricker Oil Inc. -vowed to keep pushing the proposal this session, though he acknowledged it was an uphill fight.

"A vote to expand cold beer sales is a vote to help gas stations put liquor stores out of business", Sinder says.

The convenience stores were backed by their fuel suppliers and the Indiana Chamber of Commerce.

In exchange for the monopoly on cold beer sales, package liquor stores pay more for their liquor licenses, and could therefore pay a high price for any change in policy.

"These owners have paid dearly for the privilege", he said. Liquor store owners must live in IN, operate only in towns and cities, hire and train clerks that are over 21, sell few items beyond alcohol and follow rules on store design and square footage.

Others like the Indiana Association of Beverage Retailers (IABR) feel the bill would brew up doom for mom-and-pop liquor stores. "And my customers want cold beer".

The bill passed 12-1 out of the House Public Policy Committee on Wednesday. And his committee has been a graveyard for alcohol reform bills in years past.

Cold beer got left out in the cold in an agreement between two mega-lobbying groups to instead turn all their attention to the Sunday sales bill.

"That means about 1.9 million people don't want Sunday sales". Follow him on and.
