A change in Kansas liquor laws is causing a shortage of beer in some locations.
On April 1, the alcohol content limit on beer in the Sunflower State will go from 3.2% to 6%. The change affects sales at connivence stores in the area. Some locations have seen shelves cleared, as distributors stop brining in the lower alcohol content beer. Several cities in the area, like Altamont, have adjusted city ordinances to allow for the sale of higher content beer. Altamont city leaders say their new ordinance reflects the changes to state law, and that as of April 1 stores in their town will be allowed to sell the higher content beer.
