If you were hoping to finally be able to grab a cold one at Indiana convenience stores, you're still out of luck.
A federal judge has rejected a challenge to Indiana's law that bans convenience and grocery stores from selling cold beer.
In his ruling, Judge Richard Young said the state has legitimately drawn a line by only allowing liquor stores to sell cold beer. The Indiana Attorney General,  Greg Zoeller, says the ban reflects the current decision of the people's elected representatives in the Legislature.
The Indiana Petroleum Marketers and Convenience Store Association says it plans to continue trying to overturn the law.
