(WVLT) An investigation by the Kentucky Office of Alcoholic Beverage Control has found store clerks regularly mistake energy drinks that contain alcohol with regular energy drinks.
And inadvertently, but illegally, sell them to minors.
The energy drinks, which are malt beverages, are packaged differently than typical alcoholic beverages, often with bright colors that make them appear like a regular energy drink.
The Kentucky ABC says it's critical that servers, sellers and consumers know and understand the difference.
