Why happy hour could be coming back to Kansas

  • Kansans may finally be able to celebrate happy hour.

We told you Kansas was only going to get wetter. Now, it just looks like it might start courtesy of a cheap pint of Tallgrass Beer. The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that the Kansas House gave first-round approval to a bill, House Bill 2550, that would overturn the state’s ban on happy hour.

The happy-hour ban has been on the books since 1985 when the Kansas Legislature voted to prohibit businesses from selling alcoholic drinks at different prices during different times of the day. The House session resumes at 11 a.m. today, and a formal vote is scheduled for the happy-hour bill. The Kansas Senate has already approved a similar measure, in addition to bills that would allow microdistilleries and retail liquor stores to offer free samples.
