In the April 5th, 2011 Wisconsin spring election, Sparta voted for the
seventh time not to change restrictions on the sale of beer and liquor in the city. Keeping them a dry city. On April 1st, they will try once again, thought this time it’s only to sell beer. Hansen’s IGA owner Greg Hansen dispels one rumor that if this passes, stores like Walmart will run bars out of town.
The city of Sparta is the largest community in the state that restricts beer and liquor sales to taverns and restaurants that have an on-premises consumption license.
