Powder Springs eases wine, beer restrictions

Alcoholic beverage restrictions have been eased by the Powder Springs City Council.

The Council voted 5-0 on March 16 to allow the issuance of special permits for the pouring of wine and beer and the sale of packaged wine and beer.

Now a business within the city’s downtown development district may obtain a special permit for the pouring of wine and beer for on-premises consumption and the sale of package wine and beer for off-premises consumption. Pre-packaged and prepared food products may be sold by the permit holder along with the sale of food products by a third-party vendor on the business premises.

Also on March 16, the first such permit was granted to the new Rooted Trading Company, 4455 Marietta St. in one of the city’s historic buildings in what is now the city’s first entertainment district that allows for open carry of alcoholic beverages.

Jake and Ella Hardy, property owners, plan to market prepackaged foods and alcoholic beverages and merchandise and provide access for food trucks.
