The anticipated approval of a tougher county alcohol sales ordinance, first proposed 10 years ago by a Lancaster resident, was temporarily sidelined Thursday by concerns that it would unfairly penalize liquor stores damaged during the April riots. The ordinance would require a county permit for new establishments and those that have been vacant for more than three months.

The city of Los Angeles cannot use nuisance laws to restrict the sale of alcoholic beverages at three Pacoima liquor stores even though its aim is to reduce crime, a Superior Court judge ruled Tuesday. Judge David Yaffe said the City Council usurped the authority of the state Alcoholic Beverage Control Board when it attempted to regulate the hours that the stores could sell alcohol.

Los Angeles City Councilman Ernani Bernardi's campaign to clean up three Pacoima liquor stores that have been the scene of criminal activity got a boost Thursday from a city planning official. Jon Perica, associate zoning administrator, said that during an upcoming City Hall hearing "we could easily be talking in terms of revoking" the conditional-use permit of the Pacoima Food Market, at 13132 Van Nuys Blvd., to sell liquor for off-site consumption. Perica will preside over that hearing.

The people running the nation's large liquor companies may need a few stiff drinks right about now. Typically this is the best season for the industry as we toast another year of accomplishments and look ahead to the next with a vodka martini or a fifth of Scotch. Consumption of alcoholic beverages typically kicks up from Thanksgiving through Jan. 1 as households and companies entertain more. But this year the business has been plagued by a slump in the bar and restaurant trade, frugal consumers who are trading down to less expensive brands and stiff price-cutting to boost sales.

ALAMEDA - In a 65,000-square-foot structure that once housed Navy fighter jets, Lance Winters of St. George Spirits makes popular Hangar One vodka, along with gin, bourbon, rum, whiskey, liqueurs and even absinthe. Unlike vast distilleries in Kentucky and Tennessee that make and bottle hard liquor by the millions of barrels, Hangar One is produced by one of a growing breed of small-batch, craft distillers. There are already more than 30 of them in California, and - like wineries and microbreweries - they want to charge for tastings and sell bottles for their visitors to take home.

Despite Councilwoman Heather K. Somers' protests that there are too many liquor licenses, a pharmacy planned for Harbor Boulevard can sell alcohol. Council members on Monday voted 4-1 to allow liquor sales at the Rite Aid pharmacy under construction at 3029 Harbor Blvd. Rite Aid will devote about 3% of the 16,730-foot store to liquor sales, and officials said they do not anticipate problems typically associated with convenience stores, such as loitering and underage sales.
