Topsail Beach commissioners hope to get a referendum on changing beer sales on the May ballot.
Right now--businesses are not allowed to sell beer by the glass. The current law only allows for the sale of glasses of wine.
The town board took up the issue after some businesses asked for the change.
Pender County commissioners will have to approve putting the issue to voters before it makes it onto the ballot.
County commissioners will take up the issue later this month.
