Now that is a pretty good one. Although CO is possibly going to do away with 3.2% booze. Laws were changed for liquor stores, and last July they were able to start being open on Sundays. Now grocery and convenience stores are mad because their 3.2% sales are down over two thirds. So they are petitioning to get full strength into their stores, which would eliminate 3.2.

I don't want to see it. It will hurt a lot of mom and pop liquor stores. I was fine with liquor stores closed on Sundays too.

Our car dealerships are closed Sundays too. anyone else?

Car dealers closed Sundays, not like it matters - no one's buying cars.

Not sure about liquor stores, I think they can open at noon on Sunday. I know groceries can't sell beer or wine until noon. Again, not such a big deal, most are fighting off Saturday night until about then anyway

I had never heard of the "3.2 flu" until I moved from KY to KS for college. The math works out to almost the exact same amount of alcohol. 3.2% "malt" beer is 3.2% alcohol by WEIGHT. 6% "regular" or "full strength" beer is 6% alcohol by VOLUME. It is/was a way to classify the difference between beer or wine and "hard" liquor. I don't think any of the CO crew here are old enough to answer, but was the drinking age in CO younger, way back when? I missed the cut off for drinking at 18 in KS by just a few months. It never stopped me. My KY DL was different enough they couldn't find my DOB and just let me into the bars anyway. I was 21 before I ever had a liquor store ask me for ID, unless you count that check I tried to write for about $150 of beer and burboun my second year at State

The brew 3.2% different than 6% to get/maintain the classification. I never really understood it, but the hangover hurts much worse from 3.2 beer.

Yes it was 18 until sometime in the mid 80s or so. I missed the grandfathering in by about 2-3 years. We used to have some 3.2 bars for those between 18-21 during that period. I was able to get into many bars when I was 19 and 20 due to friends or "open back doors".

We had a good hard rock/metal club called DJs that was a 3.2 bar. I was able to make it in once for a concert.
