    Default Limiting sale of alcohol?

    Saw a sign in BWS today that stated
    "NO SELLING OF WINE CASKS BEFORE 4PM".

    Thoughts?

    Default Re: Limiting sale of alcohol?

    Well let's be honest here, does ANYONE need to buy a cask of wine BEFORE 4 pm?

    Not bothered. Wouldn't touch cask wine anyway.

    The woolworths liquor near me has the same sign except it's before 11am. I don't really understand what it's supposed to achieve.

    I don't drink. At all. But what if they're already in town say doing groceries and they would like a cask of wine? Why should they have to make the extra trip just because others can't drink responsibly? And why only casks of wine? Why not just keep the store closed until 4pm?

    Obviously there must be an issue with customers purchasing wine early and making a public nuisance of themselves.

    Responsible Service of Alcohol legally mandates that establishments take measures to limit the chances of people becoming intoxicated. This store may have it in their house policy to do this by prohibiting cask wine before a certain time.

    I'd be peeved. Occasionally when I do my grocery shopping I buy casks of red and white to put in the cupboard for cooking.
