There are, of course, rules — bevvies must be sold in sealed containers and can only be purchased with food in limited quantities before midnight. You can read the whole bill here to get all the details if you are so inclined but the general gist is this: you can soon be sipping your favorite craft cocktails from the comfort of home.
