After Tuesday's vote, larger restaurants in Berea will now be able to sell alcoholic beverages with food.

FRANKFORT, Ky. (WTVQ) – Take-home cocktails are set to become a permanent option in Kentucky under a bill that’s just gotten a final approval.

It allows restaurants and bars to sell alcohol, including cocktails, in sealed containers for delivery and to-go orders.

The move follows Governor Beshear’s temporary executive order, which allows alcohol to-go sales during the pandemic to help restaurants impacted by the state’s COVID-19 restrictions.
