Starting Sunday Hoosiers will be able to buy carry-out beer, wine, and liquor at grocery, convenience, and liquor stores for the first time in 202 years. You read that right, Sunday alcohol sales had been banned as long as Indiana has been a state.
That guy with the axe on the Indiana state seal is probably thirsty by now.
But it’s a liquor law, after all, so there must be some weird aspect to it:
You can only get cold beer at a liquor store though. I’m not sure why we still regulate by temperature. One thing at a time.
Most liquor laws in the US can be explained most easily, I contend, by assuming that the legislature was drunk when they were written.
