Kentucky Public Protection Cabinet Extends Package Sales Privileges to By-the-Drink Licensees

A Comprehensive Kentucky Update

Late on Thursday, March 19, 2020, the Kentucky Public Protection Cabinet, which oversees the Kentucky Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control, issued an Order extending the privilege of selling alcohol by the package to by-the-drink retailers. This measure will facilitate the sale of limited quantities of package alcohol in conjunction with the purchase of meals on a carryout or delivery basis.

Importantly, the Order specifically prevents the sale of alcohol by the drink in “to go” cups, in contradiction to the legislation mentioned below that passed the House of Representatives earlier on Thursday. That measure has still not been approved by the Kentucky Senate.
