Booze News

If you were an entrepreneur selling liquor and you heard that nearby Washington state had ended its monopoly on liquor sales being sold only in state stores, what would you do? It’s not surprising that there are a number of stores selling alcoholic beverages kind of lined up on the Oregon-Washington border. And apparently, the reason the stores here in Oregon are doing so well is the lower cost of the goods.

Shoppers say that products that would add up to $800 in Oregon would cost about twice that in Washington State, including the state sales tax. They mentioned that Amaretto costs $11.95 for a fifth and about $36 in have seen business go up by 46 – 60 percent recently. The managers of the just-barely-inside-Oregon stores have had to hire more employees just to keep up with the business, and extend their hours and open on Sundays as well.

Well, once the consumers have loaded up on their alcoholic beverages, they can finally confidently take some, but not all of them to the parks in the City of Sherwood.
It seems that the code has been confusing up until now, with one part allowing beer and wine into the park, and another part stating that a permit or license was needed in order to imbibe in the park. Which was in effect?

Sherwood Police Chief Jeff Groth proposed a plan in September 2012 to allow residents to purchase an alcohol permit for beer and wine, but not hard liquor, to be brought into the park. There was a debate as to whether the permit should cost $25 or less than that. The important point the Police Chief wanted to make was to clarify what the law says. All agreed that special events would still need a special permit from the Oregon Liquor Control Board.

Alcohol sales are here to stay, but individuals still have the responsibility to regulate how much they drink and where and when. When driving: none. When working: none. And considering the state of the economy, when budgeting: very little should go that direction.
