Judge rejects challenge to Indiana cold beer law

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A federal judge has rejected a challenge to Indiana's law that prohibits convenience stores and groceries from selling cold beer.

Federal Judge Richard L. Young issued a ruling Monday saying the state has legitimately drawn a line by only allowing liquor stores to sell cold beer.

The Indiana Petroleum Marketers and Convenience Store Association says it plans to continue trying to overturn the law. The group filed the lawsuit last year, arguing the restrictions on cold beer sales are discriminatory and don't allow for a fair marketplace.

The Indiana Association of Beverage Retailers supports the current law, maintaining grocery and convenience stores that don't face age restrictions as liquor stores on who can enter and the requirement of hiring clerks with state liquor licenses.
