Lincoln County To Vote on Local Liquor-by-the-Drink

Oklahoma's Age Old Question - Liquor By The Drink

Lincoln County voters will consider whether to join 42 other counties in Oklahoma where liquor by the drink is legal. on Tuesday, Lincoln County commissioners passed a resolution to hold the election.

The Lincoln County Grape Growers Association has agreed to pay the estimated $6,500 to $7,500 in costs for the special election.

Association president Don Neal says if the county is going to promote tourism it makes sense that restaurants be allowed to sell the association's products.

Liquor by the Drink was defeated by a 65-percent majority when it was last considered in 1986. However, with the recent growth of several new wineries in the county (like Sparks, StableRidge, Tidal School & Greenfield), local grape growers and wine makers are hoping that voters will support their efforts to boost tourism this time.
