Oklahoma Liquor Laws.

Find all the information you need at the Oklahoma ABLE Commission.

The alcohol laws of Oklahoma comprehensively limit and regulate the sale of alcohol in Oklahoma.

Any beverage containing more than 3.2% alcohol by weight or 4% alcohol by volume, that is, most liquors, wines, and “strong” beer (containing more than 3.2% alcohol by weight), may only be sold in licensed liquor stores at room temperature. To circumvent the alcohol content restrictions, franchised beer distributors in Oklahoma primarily sell “low-point beer”. This allows the beer to be sold not only in convenience stores and supermarkets, but in refrigerated form. The law defines low-point beer as any beverage containing between 0.5% and 3.2% alcohol by weight.

Off-premises

It is illegal to sell packaged liquor (off-premises sales) on Sundays. Sales also are prohibited on Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day. Low-point beer for consumption off-premises may not be sold between 2:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m.

On-premises

In Oklahoma, each county decides for itself whether it will permit the sale of alcohol by the glass. Low-point beer may not be sold for consumption on-premises or allowed to be consumed in places licensed to sell alcohol between 2:00 a.m. and 7:00 a.m. This crime is punishable by a fine of up to $500 and up to 6 months imprisonment.

Licensed vendors may not advertise happy hours, serve more than two beverages at a time to a customer, give a discount to a person or group of persons, or permit the play of games that involve drinking.
