Fight over Ind. beer sales goes to federal court

Two organizations are trying to lift a state ban on cold beer sales in Indiana convenience stores.

INDIANAPOLIS — A trade group is taking its case against the state’s ban on cold beer sales by Indiana’s convenience stores to federal court.

The Indiana Petroleum Marketers and Convenience Store Association maintains in its lawsuit against the Indiana Alcohol and Tobacco Commission that the law violates the equal protection clause of the U.S. Constitution. That’s because liquor stores are allowed to sell cold beer, while convenience, grocery and drug stores must sell beer at room temperature.

The state maintains in court documents that it has done nothing unconstitutional.

A two-day trial in the case is scheduled to begin Thursday afternoon in federal court in Indianapolis.
