High-gravity beer is now in Tennessee grocery stores

The beer aisle at your local grocery story might look a bit different starting today.

Although it never quite got the attention that the law allowing wine in grocery stores did, Tennessee’s craft beer brewers are rejoicing today now that it’s legal to put their specialties with higher alcohol content on the shelves wherever other beer is sold.

A law passed in 2014 and revised during the 2016 legislative session takes effect Jan. 1, allowing craft beer of up to 8 percent alcohol by volume to be sold anywhere other beer is sold.

The 2014 law allowed for high-gravity beer to be sold in tap rooms, but the law was revised in 2016 to allow beer sales in groceries and convenience stores.
