Minnesota Beer Activists are hard at work for the repeal of the Sunday liquor sales law that prohibits alcohol to be sold in Minnesota on Sundays.
Andrew Schmitt, Director of the MN Beer Activists, has been working towards repealing the Sunday liquor sales law for quite some time, but now the movement has gained more momentum than ever. The support for Sunday liquor sales in Minnesota has grown from word of mouth, to petitions, to partnerships, to a new website (SundaySalesMN.org), to a St. Patrick’s Day Sunday Sales Rally at First Ave, and now a tongue-in-cheek video advertisement to boot!
It just keeps getting better for supporters of the MN Beer Activists… Not only are tickets to the St. Patrick’s Day Rally super affordable (just $10!), but there will be live music from Romantica, White Iron Band, Silverback Colony, and Mark Andrew—who was on NBC’s The Voice. Add in swag from MN Beer Activists, Brewed in MN, live screen printing on t-shirts from Shameless Inc, and $25 dollars towards a Lyft ride home for everyone in attendance!
“The St. Patrick’s Day Sunday Sales Music Rally is an effort to bring awareness to our new website, SundaySalesMN.org,” said Schmitt. This new website makes it even easier to sign the petition ending the Prohibition-era Sunday liquor sales ban and allowing Minnesota to move into the 21st Century. It also provides education, resources, and corrects misconceptions about the Sunday liquor sales bills.
Now for some humor. The MN Beer Activists have put together a video that Schmitt says “Offers a funny but eye-opening perspective on Minnesota’s Sunday prohibition.” Take a look and imagine what life would be like in a world where you can’t buy chocolate shakes on Thursdays. The horror!
