Six-pack, four wheels

The keg is tapped. The
30-packs emptied. And to keep
the party going, a late night beer
run is needed.
Not too long ago, University
students and AnnArbor citizens
could restock their refreshments
for the rest of the night without
even leaving the air-conditioned.
comfort of their cars.
Up until 2003, the Beer
Depot in downtown Ann Arbor
offered its customers who were
too lazy ortoo hurried to get out
of their cars a drive-through
service to purchase alcohol.
Paul Karlinski, a University
alum, remembers riding in a
friend's car to buy beer at the
"I thought it was amazing
that you could drive through to
get it," he said.
Ben Grabill, the Beer Depot's
manager, said he started work-

ing at the store six-and-a-half
years ago when the ownership
changed. That was just before
the drive-through was removed.
Grabill said customers, often
on a daily basis asking about the
fate of the drive-through.
The fate of the Depot's drive-
through was sealed when the
store changed locations in 2003
from South State Street to its
current location on East Wil-
liam Street with the transfer
of ownership, according to Ken
Wozniak, the director of execu-
tive service for the Liquor Con-
trol Commission in Michigan.
Wozniak said it is illegal to
transfer a liquor license that
allows the sale of alcoholic
beverages through a window
to a new location. He added
that police were having a hard
time monitoring alcohol sales

with this type of business, so
they stopped issuing licenses to
businesses with drive-through
or walk-up windows.
When the new owners
requested their license be
transferred to the store's new
location, they were denied, in
part because they wished to
continue the drive-through
service, he said.
The new owners appealed the
order denying their request in
October of thatyear and received
their license in December, pro-
vided that the drive-through
window be closed and perma-
nently sealed, Wozniak said.
Though the days of the
drive-through have passed,
the Depot's drive-through sign
remains mostly untouched, a
wistful reminder of easier beer-
buying days past.

The Beer Depot stopped selling alcohol from a drive-through window in
2003, when the business moved from South State Street to its current
location on East William Street.
