Why is Minnesota the last state with 3.2 beer?

Ours is the only state left still acting like a Prohibition-era scold by restricting beer sales at grocery and convenience stores to those with 3.2 percent alcohol.

It's enough to make a guy like Star Tribune reader David Infanger ask, "Why is Minnesota the last state to have 3.2 beer?"

It's such a random number, Infanger said, and now that liquor stores are open seven days a week, why do we limit the alcohol content of beer sold at some places but not others?
