Take-home beer growlers now available for purchase seven days a week
(THE MED CITY BEAT) - Beer drinkers in Rochester will now have the chance to purchase take-home growlers from local microbreweries on Sundays.
The Rochester City Council approved an ordinance revision this week that allows the sale of 64-ounce glass containers on Sundays. The change goes into effect this weekend.
The move was in response to a new state law that gives local governments the authority to allow Sunday sales by craft breweries. All other forms of off-site alcohol sales — with the exception of diluted 3.2 percent beer — are still prohibited on Sundays in Minnesota.
