Another Push in Legislature to Expand Beer and Wine Sales in Kansas

An advocacy group is making another push this year to broaden sales of wine and beer Kansas. The group Uncork Kansas is proposing a bill that would allow grocery and convenience stores to sell full strength beer and wine.

In the past, opponents claimed that expanding the sale of alcohol would hurt small businesses, namely liquor stores. Jessica Lucas, with Uncork Kansas, says the new bill tries to satisfy those concerns. 


“We are offering this year a bill that would still allow consumers to buy beer and wine in grocery and convenience stores, which is their number one request, while allowing liquor stores to continue to have exclusivity on spirits,” says Lucas.
 
Currently, only liquor stores can sell liquor, wine and full-strength beer. Grocery and convenience stores can sell beer containing 3.2 percent alcohol or less.
