2 of 3 propositions on sale, distribution of alcohol defeated in Colorado

Propositions 124 and 126, changing the sale of wine in grocery and convenience stores and delivery methods for alcohol, were defeated.

DENVER — One of the three propositions regarding alcohol sales and distribution in Colorado was still too close to call as of Thursday evening.

Colorado residents voted on Propositions 124, 125 and 126, which would all change the way alcohol is sold in the state.

Proposition 124: retail liquor licenses

Proposition 124 would have changed rules surrounding the number of licenses for liquor stores. 

A “yes” vote for Prop 124 would have allowed liquor stores to add more locations, up to eight in 2026 and increasing gradually to an unlimited number starting in 2037. 

They’re currently restricted to up to four locations by 2031.

That proposition was defeated, according to The Associated Press. 

Proposition 125: expand alcohol licenses

Proposition 125 would amend what is known as the "Colorado Beer Code." 

A “yes” vote for Prop 125 would let grocery and convenience stores that sell beer also sell wine starting in March 2023.

The proposition passed, according to The Associated Press.

Proposition 126: allow alcohol delivery

Proposition 126 would have amended the Colorado Liquor Code, where a “yes” vote would allow home alcohol delivery from third-party services.

The delivery had to be from a licensed retailer, and the driver must have been at least 21, but it could arrive on your doorstep through a third-party service like Grubhub. It also would have made permanent the current ability — set to expire in 2025 — for bars and restaurants to sell takeout and delivery alcoholic beverages.

That proposition was defeated, according to The Associated Press.
