INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (21Alive) -- A Federal Judge in Indianapolis upheld a state law that forbids grocery stores and gas stations from selling cold beer.
RTV6 reports, the Indiana Petroleum Marketers and Convenience Store Association filed the lawsuit saying the state law violated the U.S. Constitution by favoring one type of retailer. As the law stands, only package liquor stores can sell cold beer while all other retail outlets must sell beer at room temperature.
The ruling said that allowing convenience stores and grocery stores to sell cold beer would make it harder for Indiana Excise Police to enforce state liquor laws.
