Wisconsin Lawmakers Want Alcohol Sales To Start At 6AM

Tuesday, October 4th, 2011 at 8:33 am

The Wisconsin State Legislature wants to allow alcohol sales as early as 6am.

The Legislature wants to make it easier for sports fans to buy booze for tailgating. The current law doesn’t allow beer and alcohol sales at grocery and liquor stores until 8am.

The bill is scheduled to be voted on by a Senate committee. The bill has already cleared a state Assembly committee.

The bill would only apply to stores that hold licenses allowing for off-premises consumption. The proposal would not change the required ending time for liquor sales of 9pm and beer sales at midnight.
