Change to Daylight Savings Time and Effect on Sale of Alcoholic Beverages

Under New York State Law, Daylight Savings Time will be in effect in New York State at 2 a.m. on Sunday, March 8, 2009.

The legal hours for the sale of alcoholic beverages will be determined under Daylight Savings Time. Thus, for the purpose of the Alcoholic Beverage Control Law, the time will be moved forward one hour at 2 a.m. on Sunday, March 8, 2009. In as much as the Alcoholic Beverage Control Law prohibits the sale of liquor for consumption on the premises between 4 a.m. and 12 noon on Sunday, the change in time will result in a loss of one hour during which liquor may be sold on that date.

Where any local alcoholic beverage control board has adopted any rule further restricting the hours of sale for alcoholic beverages, such restricted hours shall be the hours during which the sale of alcoholic beverages at retail for on-premises consumption shall be permitted within the jurisdiction of such board.
