Minnesota is the last state left with a 3.2% alcohol content restriction.
Kansas and Utah recently passed laws to allow convenience and grocery stores to sell alcohol above 3.2% alcohol by weight.
This leaves Minnesota as the last state to prohibit these sales.
In Kansas, after years of campaigning by convenience and grocery stores, and strong opposition by liquor stores, the state will allow up to 6% alcohol by volume starting April 1.
“We worked so hard to finally bring Kansas out of Prohibition—in a few more weeks, we’ll be there. We love it,” Mike Thornbrugh, a spokesman for QuikTrip, told The Wichita Eagle.
Thornbrugh told The Wichita Eagle that beer sales in Kansas convenience stores currently only account for about 1% of total in-store sales.
The law will also allow liquor stores to sell non-alcoholic products—as long as they don’t exceed 20% of gross sales, excluding tobacco and lottery ticket sales.
In Utah, the law will allow convenience and grocery stores to sell drinks with 4.0% alcohol by weight, starting in November.
“It’s not everything we’d hoped for, but it is the biggest change in alcohol laws in Utah since 1933,” Kate Bradshaw of the Responsible Beer Choice Coalition told Salt Lake City’s Fox affiliate.
