I disagree with Mr. Maisch in the above article.
Government shouldn't impose restrictions or laws that prohibit freedom of choice. Someone in the 3 tier distribution system in Oklahoma is making money because of the current laws being kept the way they are... follow the money.
They make excuses as to why they want it kept the way it is, but logic will tell you different.

There is a bill being considered to do away with 3.2 rules and allow wine sales in grocery stores. I've got my fingers crossed!

I don't really care either way. I do know the current laws are crazy though. There isn't much logical to them.

Brewpubs need help!

I think the brewpubs in Oklahoma should be able to brew over 3.2% beer and serve it in their own restaurants without having to sell it to a distributor just to turn around and buy it back to be able to sell it in their own place. THAT IS CRAZY! I also think Breweries should be able to sell directly to the consumers and have tasting rooms the way the wineries can.

I grew up in a "dry" county (and a "dry" home) in Texas but heard other people talk about going to the county line...I wasn't sure why at the time! When I moved to Oklahoma before liquor by the drink was passed, people carried huge bottles of liquor to clubs to party and attempted to finish them off in one night. I was glad to see liquor by the drink pass. Later I went to Chicago on a business trip and was totally surprised to see liquor sold at the local Walgreens! Guess that could be next in Oklahoma. A friend who has been in the liquor wholesale business for years says certain people have political clout and money that has made changing the liquor laws very difficult. He favors changes. Like someone said...follow the money.
