Queensland pub owner to fight grog ban

Jeff Bambrick, owner of Burketown Pub, is taking the Queensland Government to court over its liquor licensing laws restricting the sale of alcohol in indigenous communities. The laws prevent him from selling cask wine and limit him to selling two beer cartons per vehicle per day. He claims these laws are destroying his business and he should not be penalised by the laws.

"We understand that there's problems in the community and we support the restrictions in trying to manage that but restricting the pubs isn't the way to do it," he said.
