I live in Missouri now and they do this! Liquor is for sale everywhere, even Aldi's and the local gas station. That, in and of itself, is a mind blower, but when you go to Dillons and they have samples out everywhere, they do it in the liquor dept. too! A few weeks ago hubby and I were shopping and it was free tequila sample day and they had six different types you could try. By the time I got to the dairy dept. (where they had free wine/cheese trays) I was half in the bag! Free booze is wonderful...always!!

Now it is time to eliminate the state monopoly on liquor distribution.

It's hard to imagine a self-proclaimed alcoholic being against free samples.

I can't imagine why anyone would say "no" to this? They aren't saying that every bottle can be sampled, but that it could be offered by the distributors if they chose to. Think of it like trying samples at CostCo ... but a lot better. Geez.

Can I try some of that Irish coffee now, please?

a six-pack is barely a taste

I'm all for it. Bottoms up!

Why not, after all I give free samples of things to my doctor. Is it normal for your chiropractor to want a semen sample?

Wineries in Kansas pour free samples.

This practice is already done in at least one liquor store in KC. For a small fee you can try tiny pours of several wines. For something like wine, it really makes sense.

This is the most idiotic concept I have ever heard of..... don't you idiots know this would drive up the cost of alcohol, besides just being plain stupid???

Please. Who would ever get around to buying something?


Curtis Lange 2 years, 3 months ago

Would love to have tastings. Nothing worse than buying a six pack of something new, drinking one, not liking it then having five left over beers taking up space.

Who votes against free alcohol?

Are you crazy? Does HyVee let me try the shrimp first? Does Dillons' cook me up some hamburger helper to see how I like it? Besides a liquor store that did that would just have a bunch of spacehogs hanging out in the parking lot all day.
