WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Hoosiers may still not be able to buy cold beer at gas stations, but they can crack open a cold one at this southern Indiana funeral home.
The Scott funeral home in Jeffersonville is now offering alcohol to mourners.
It recently obtained a liquor license and started serving beer, wine and liquor at services.
It's part of a growing trend spreading across the country.
People seem to be buying into the idea of booze at funerals – some even going as far to adjust their wills to ensure drinks are served after they die.
Those who support it say it gives a day centered around death more life.
Aaron Scott; owner of Scott Funeral Home said, "You've always heard people say, don't cry for me. Don't come in and do a somber funeral, celebrate my life, or throw a party for me, and so this is kind of our way to do it."
For families who have that relative who might drink a little too much, Scott says his employees will constantly be watching for just that.
