The Liquor Dam Is Cracking

While the bill to permit the sale of wine in grocery stores stalled again in committee, it did garner a warmer reception and a broader scope of debate than in years past. New laws passed during this legislative session also allow the distillation of spirits in 41 counties in addition to the locales where Messrs. Dickel and Daniel have traditionally drawn their spring water. Finally, in an effort to decriminalize what has been happening in the carry-on bags at BNA for decades, it is now legal to ship wine into Tennessee from out-of-state wineries that pay $300 non-refundable application fee and $150 annual permit fee. Maybe the state can use that money to pay for extra security in state parks and bars, now that it's also legal to be packin' something else into those locations. Chris Chamberlain
