Iowa Law Says Restaurants Can Keep Selling To Go Alcoholic Beverages
If you enjoyed buying cocktails to-go during quarantine, you'll still be able to do that with a new law passed in Iowa.
Iowa lawmakers passes legislation on Tuesday that allows restaurants to continue to sell alcoholic drinks to-go.
According to KWWL.com, the law that was intended to help small businesses during the quarantine shut down will now be permanent.
Maybe smaller hospitality businesses can try to recoup the money lost while they were closed. I asked the Mississippi River Distilling Company and Cody Road Cocktail House in LeClaire if they would keep selling to-go cocktails now that the business is open to customers. A MRDC rep told me they need some time to go over the rules of the new law, but say they plan to do something.
We'll keep you posted.
According to KWWL.com, there are 30 states allowing the purchase of to-go alcoholic drinks. Only four of those states hope to make it a permanent solution.
