Sunday Beer Sales Privileges

No C or D permit holder who first applied for a permit after April 15, 1982, shall sell beer on Sunday unless the sale of intoxicating liquor is authorized in the precinct or portion of the precinct under a local option election on the 1:00 p.m. Sunday sales questions (1), (2), or (3) (Form 5-D above), on the 10:00 a.m. Sunday questions (1), (2), or (3) (Form 5-E below), on Sunday sales questions (1), (2), or (3) (1:00 p.m. “Limited Effect” Sunday local options), on questions (1), (2), or (3) (10:00 a.m. “Limited Effect”  Sunday local options, or on Particular Location local option question (2) for the sale of wine and mixed beverages and/or spirituous liquor. No D-6 is required to sell beer on Sundays.

Note: With a few exceptions, Ohio law provides for the on-premise or off-premise sale of beer on Sunday by any C or D permit holder without the necessity of a Sunday D-6 license if any Sunday sales questions have been approved in the precinct or portion of the precinct where the permit is so located. The sale of beer on Sunday is also permitted if the C or D class permit was originally applied for prior to April 15, 1982. This “grandfather clause” allows Sunday beer sales by all C or D permit holders in precincts that are otherwise dry for all Sunday sales. Exceptions to this privilege include voter approval for the sale of beer ONLY on Sunday at a Particular Business location within a precinct (Form 5-R), and voter approval of the community facility question (Form 5-S).
