Sunday Beer Sales Will Happen in Georgia – at Least Some Parts of It

Submitted by on November 9, 2011 – 10:06 pmNo Comment

Results of referendums across Georgia overwhelmingly favored allowing alcohol sales on Sunday, but because local municipalities voted individually, it will still require road trippers to do some research to know where they can legally buy a six-pack of beer on Sunday.

According to a story posted by the Reuters news service, 110 of the `127 counties and cities that voted on the issue Tuesday approved the sales.  Most of these had other issues on the off-year ballot; nearly 500 other jurisdictions are expected to vote on Sunday alcohol sales in 2012.

Opposition to the proposals was light, and Sunday alcohol sales were approved by more than 80 percent of voters in some cities, including Atlanta.

The start of Sunday beer sales will start at different times, with some municipalities planning to unchain the coolers in the next week and two, and others waiting until January 1, according to a report by WABE News.

Earlier this year, Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal signed a bill that allowed the Sunday liquor sales referendums to proceed, leading the way to the end of a statewide ban on Sunday package sales that had been in place since the late 1800s.
