Sushi Restaurants to Sell Alcohol?

Published fredag 15 januari 2010 kl 15.33
Sushi and beer?

Under new proposals regarding alcohol permits, the Swedish government would like to see restaurants and cafe's that don't serve hot meals, such as Sushi restaurants, be allowed in future to serve alcohol.

At present, only those that serve warm food can obtain a license. The government will also further examine whether farmers and beer producers can sell alcohol on their own premises.

Health Minister Maria Larsson denied that the changes would mean alcohol consumption would go up and said that the local authorities would need to keep a close eye on the types of establishments that were granted a license. Hamburger chains would not be permitted to serve beer.

Sweden has a state monopoly on selling alcohol and some of the toughest regulations in the world.
