Alcohol shoppers who want to buy Budweiser at a local liquor store will have to wait until mid-November.
Anheuser-Busch announced it would begin distributing Budweiser and other products in Oklahoma liquor stores on November 1. The line of products are only currently sold in convenience and grocery stores.
"Convenience stores and stuff like that carry most of them because they can only sell 3.2 and the liquor stores can only sell strong beer," said Kevin Church, owner of Glenpool Liquor.
Liquor stores sell a stronger variation of the beer, meaning the product has an alcohol content volume higher than 3.2 percent.
Shoppers like Clifton Keathley are ready for the beer to be in stock.
"I'd rather not have so much water in my beer," Keathley said. "It's football season, that's all. It just goes hand in hand."
Church already started advertising that Budweiser products would be sold at his store. He said that lots of people have come in to buy the drinks but he's had to suggest something else for them to get. Church suspects state labeling requirements are the hold up.
"Every beer that comes into the state has to have Oklahoma plus on the label or strong beer or actually say the alcohol content of the beer," he said. "It's been pushed back to the eleventh."
