Supporters of legalizing Sunday liquor store sales in Minnesota may have to put a cork in it this year.
Sunday liquor sales advocates are regrouping after a setback at the Minnesota Capitol. A provision that would have let taprooms sell growlers on Sundays was stripped Monday from a broader liquor bill in the Senate Tax Committee. Growlers are refillable bottles that may be taken away.
Two State lawmakers recently offered several bills that would achieve the same goal: allowing Sunday liquor sales in Minnesota. The bills range from allowing state-wide sales on Sunday to just allowing sales at breweries and tap rooms across the state. Another proposal by Sen. Roger Reinert of Duluth and Rep. Jennifer Loon of Eden Prairie would let individual cities decide if they want to allow Sunday sales.
