MS city welcomes cold beer

Posted: Updated:

(WMC-TV) - One Mississippi city is welcoming cold beer after decades of trying to change an old law.

Oxford's beer ordinance has faced opposition for years. Now, after a recent vote among city leaders, residents will be able to buy cold beer at gas stations and grocery stores. This will even apply on Sundays.

Prior to this ruling, an ordinance stated it was only legal to buy warm beer not cold beer.

Supporters of the measure declared repealing the ordinance will bring more revenue to the city, especially during the University of Mississippi football season.

The move to cold beer follows after weeks of debating over the issue.
