Distilled Spirits Council Lauds Alcohol Modernization as a Win for Colorado Consumers

May 11, 2016 02:34 PM

Urges Governor to Sign Bill

The Distilled Spirits Council today praised the Colorado Legislature for passing compromise legislation (SB 197), which modernizes Colorado’s alcohol laws by allowing the sale of spirits, wine and beer in grocery stores.

“This is a fair and reasoned approach to modernizing Colorado’s alcohol laws,” said Distilled Spirits Council Vice President Dale Szyndrowski. “Lawmakers designed a solution that benefits small and large suppliers, grocers, retailers and, importantly, Colorado’s consumers. We commend the legislature for acting and urge the Governor to sign this legislation following the Senate’s final approval.”

SB 197 allows grocery and package stores to obtain an increasing number of spirits, wine and beer licenses beginning January 1, 2017.
