Is Wine Coming to the Disco Kroger? Federal Judge Rules Kentucky ban on wine/liquor sales at groceries unconstitutional


The Herald-Leader reports this afternoon that a federal judge has ruled Kentucky’s ban on wine and liquor sales at groceries is unconstitutional, citing an Equal Protection clause under the Fourteenth Amendment.

Beer is currently sold in Kentucky groceries in wet counties, but not wine or spirits (some Kentucky groceries do have package sales, but with a separate entrance).

The Tennessean quoted the accompanying memorandum from U.S. District Judge John G. Heyburn II  stating that Kentucky had not answered the question  “why a grocery-selling drugstore like Walgreens may sell wine and liquor, but a pharmaceutical-selling grocery store like Kroger cannot.”

Don’t expect to pick up wine at the Disco Kroger on your way home from work, though. The wheels of justice grind slowly.

In December of 2008, Ace reported that petitions were circulating at Lexington Krogers supporting wine sales at groceries (the signatures at register four at Kroger on Euclid included some prominent downtown officials).
