New Legislation Will Modernize New York’s Alcohol Laws

Albany, N.Y. — A new legislation was signed Saturday to help improve alcohol laws in New York.

Gov. Kathy Hocul announced the signing of a new legislation package that will help improve New York’s laws related to alcoholic beverages in an effort to expand options for consumers and support New York’s small businesses in the alcoholic beverage sector.

“Across New York, breweries, distilleries, and other alcoholic beverage businesses are creating jobs and expanding economic opportunity,” Hochul said in a statement. “I’m proud to sign this legislation that will modernize the laws governing the sales of alcoholic beverages in New York.”

The new legislation allows for the selling of beer, cider and other alcoholic beverages on any day of the week, including Sundays.

It will also allow liquor and wine stores to expand their Sunday hours so that they may open at 10 a.m. and close at 10 p.m.

Alcohol to-go was established as law in this year’s state budget, allowing take-out drinks.

Last year, Hochul also signed legislation to allow catering establishments to apply for off-premises licenses to serve liquor at event locations, supporting caters and small businesses in the hospitality industry.
