Governor Brian Kemp signed a bill into law that allows restaurants, supermarkets and liquor stores make home deliveries of beer, wine and distilled spirits in Georgia.
But that doesn’t mean you can call up your local convenience store and order beer delivered to your house just yet. The new law requires local legislation to be passed before stores can legally deliver to your door.
“This new law represents the balance of safe, convenient delivery while maintaining the rights for local governments to decide what is best for their community,” said Martin Smith, executive director of the Georgia Beer Wholesalers Association. “We want to thank Governor Kemp and the Georgia legislature for setting a high standard for the safe delivery of alcohol in our state.”
