Colorado restaurants and bars are one step closer to being able to sell Corona Light and Murphy’s Irish Stout again, after a bill permitting low-alcohol beer sales in those establishments passed a Senate committee Tuesday.

Senate Bill 60, sponsored by Sens. Betty Boyd, D-Lakewood, and Jean White, R-Hayden, would reverse a law allowing only establishments with low-alcohol “fermented beverage” licenses, such as convenience and grocery stores, to sell beers less than 4 percent alcohol by volume.

Specifically, it would allow all liquor-license holders to sell low-alcohol beers, wines and spirits specifically for on-premises consumption.
