Money is the driving force behind politics. Currently, convenience or grocery store shoppers in Oklahoma can only by 3.2% beer. Full strength beer is available at liquor stores and brew pubs. That is likely about to change. There are two bills in the legislature
that would let those stores sell full strength beer. The reason? Low alcohol beer sales have slumped while full strength beer sales have increased. Since Oklahoma accounts for 55% of 3.2% beer sales in the country, the big brewers are eager to pick up the slack in sales, and convenience store owners want a piece of the liquor store business.
