Effects of Cold Beer in Oxford, Mississippi

Beer for sale at Joe's Craft Beer in Oxford, Mississippi.
In 1972, Oxford, Mississippi passed an ordinance allowing the sale of beer which was previously forbidden after World War II. However, for 40 years, Oxford, Mississippi was unable to sell cold beer within it's city limits. For these four decades Ole Miss students as well as Oxford residents had to travel all the way to the county line to purchase cold beer.

In August of 2013 the Oxford Board of Alderman approved a cold beer and light wine sales law that took effect on September 20, 2013.
