There's no beverage of moderation, only the practice of moderation.

Understanding Moderation

Part of responsible drinking is understanding that a standard drink of beer, distilled spirits and wine each contains the same amount of alcohol. It's not what you drink, it's how much that counts.

FORT MITCHELL ALLOWS SUNDAY LIQUOR SALES -- City Becomes 4th in Kentucky to Repeal Outdated Blue Law

October 18, 2004 08:00 PM
FORT MITCHELL – Fort Mitchell becomes the fourth Kentucky city to allow Sunday liquor sales, following a vote last night by the Fort Mitchell City Council, according to the Distilled Spirits Council. The move will allow Sunday liquor sales this weekend for the first time since Prohibition. Three other Kentucky municipalities – Bellevue, Independence and Crescent Springs – have passed similar ordinances since a July 30 court ruling that allows local governments to decide whether to overturn the antiquated Blue Law banning Sunday spirits sales. “In today’s busy society, Sunday is the second busiest shopping day of the week, and it makes good business sense to modernize spirits sales and allow stores to open seven days a week,” said Peter H. Cressy, President of the Distilled Spirits Council, which has successfully pushed for states to allow beverage alcohol sales on Sundays. The Distilled Spirits Council is working with the Kentucky Wine and Spirits Wholesalers Association and retailers in other Kentucky cities to support Sunday sales measures. In the past two and a half years, 11 states – including Kentucky and nearby Ohio – have moved to allow Sunday sales, bringing to 32 the total number of states that allow beverage alcohol sales on Sundays.
