The Lone Rock Bistro and Taproom is the first local spot to announce to-go cocktails following the state passing the bill allowing restaurants to sell carryout alcohol on Friday, and going into effect Sunday.

Gov. Tony Ever’s signed the bill March 26, allowing bars and restaurants holding a “Class B” liquor license to serve mixed drinks and glasses of wine to-go in tamper proof containers.

The bill, enacted as 2021 Wisconsin Act 21, stipulates the carryout drinks can be for pickup only, not delivery.

Mike Haight, General Manager of the Lone Rock Bistro and Taproom said they will be able to offer over 100 drinks to-go within a few days, as soon as the tamper-evident packaging arrives.

The bar will be offering 12 and 14 ounce cocktails, and can make any drink normally offered at the bar. Including old fashioned and hand muddled mojitos.
