Congrats to The Four Firkins and everyone else who supported two bills that give liquor stores in Minnesota a little more flexibility. We covered them a few months ago here…
So what will these bills allow? One will allow liquor stores to sell store-branded apparel. The other will allow liquor stores to charge a fee for tasting/education events in order to pay
folks like myself big bucks to sample beer with their patrons special guest speakers.
Also included in the omnibus liquor bill are provisions to allow for beer sales at the U of M’s TCF Bank Stadium (and if I follow correctly, sales can’t be limited solely to the suites) as well as a bill allowing breweries that aren’t distributed in Minnesota to sample beer at one festival a year.
