Beer and wine for Veteran's Day!

Brian King
Staff Writer

GREENWOOD, SC – Those who dine in the City of Greenwood this Veteran’s Day will have the option of having a beer or glass of wine, according to City Manager Charlie Barrineau.

Voters who reside inside the city limits voted last Tuesday to allow bars and restaurants the option of serving alcohol for consumption on premises with nearly 65% of the vote. Those results were certified on Friday.

The City of Greenwood will now submit the proper paperwork regarding the referendum to the South Carolina Department of Revenue (SCDOR).  Officials anticipate it will take about two weeks for SCDOR to update their computer systems to allow for the purchase and issuance of a new permit.  That process may be slowed some as a number of other municipalities throughout South Carolina passed similar referendums.

In 2011, South Carolina lawmakers passed a change to the state law that allows bars and restaurants who already possess a permit to sell beer and wine for on-premises consumption to begin selling beer and wine only as soon as a favorable referendum has passed. The additional permitting from SCDOR which will require the wait only applies to liquor.

That means that this Sunday, November 11th, restaurants and bars who already have a beer and wine permit can sell beer and wine. The new law does not apply to grocery stores, convenience stores or anywhere else alcohol can be purchased for off-premises consumption.
