Minnesota Legislature approves beer sales at the state capitol

Posted: Updated:


ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Your favorite brew may soon be available for purchase at the state Capitol.
 
The Legislature passed a bill Monday that includes a provision that directs the city of St. Paul to issue and on-sale wine and malt liquor license to the Capitol cafeteria. The bill now goes to Gov. Mark Dayton.
 
The Capitol's basement cafeteria is a German-style rathskeller cafe. It was restored to its original design in 2000. It even has a painted slogan on the ceiling, in German, that urges visitors to enjoy an adult beverage.
 
The boozy provision is part of a package that distributes sales tax money from the state's so-called Legacy amendment to parks and to arts and cultural programs.
