Burr's Tucker Herndon Featured in Beverage News Daily on Major Changes in Tennessee Liquor Laws
In an article published in Kane's Beverage News Daily on Wednesday, September 19, Tucker Herndon discusses the changing laws in Tennessee surrounding liquor sales in grocery stores.
A recent change in Tennessee law will now allow wine to be sold in grocery stores on Sunday and most holidays. "It's a very, very big change in Tennessee," Tucker Herndon, Nashville office managing partner of the 300-lawyer firm Burr & Forman said. This change comes as part of the approval process to allow wine in grocery stores, which is expected to take effect next year. Retail liquor stores got a roughly six-month head start on Sunday sales as well as the approval to sell liquor and beer on Sunday.
This also comes at a time when alcohol sales at collegiate sporting events is being tested in the state. If these trial tests prove successful, Herndon expects alcohol sales to spread across the state, although individual conferences will also have to approve.
