This year’s Colorado beer debate up at Capitol

DENVER — A long fight over where full-strength beer can be sold in Colorado is back at the state Capitol.

A House committee planned to start work today on a bill changing the Colorado Beer Code. It would allow convenience stores, grocery stores and gas stations to sell beer and malt beverages of more than 3.2 percent alcohol, called full-strength beer.

The bill has been debated for years in Colorado, and its prospects are unclear this year. Liquor stores say they’d be driven out of business if full-strength suds can be sold elsewhere.

The House Economic & Business Development Committee takes up the question this afternoon.
