Cocktails-To-Go signed into law in Illinois

Governor Pritzker signed cocktails-to-go into law in Illinois. Which would allow bars and restaurants in Illinois to sell cocktails-to-go. Craft brewers are not allowed to sell cocktails-to-go in Illinois.

Chicago says they will delay implementation of cocktails-to-go at least until the City Council meets on June 17th. Naperville which has the 2nd biggest hospitality community in Illinois is green lighting it.

Cocktails-For-Hope for which I act as the legal and policy advisor will be advocating heavily in Chicago as we did on the state level. Here is a story about our advocacy efforts.

Also, here is a synopsis of the bill. Let me know if you need advocacy or legal advice on this issue.
