When the Kentucky Alcoholic Beverage Control hears two Danville appeal cases - one for a farm winery and one for the convention center - it will tread on new territory.
There are no other cases, to the knowledge of ABC attorney Steve Humphress, where a community with limited restaurant sales has had either a convention center with a liquor license or a farm winery with either a malt beverage or restaurant wine license.
The hearings for Old Crow Inn winery and Danville Convention Center are set for Jan. 8 in Frankfort and are open to the public.
The ABC's commissioner, distilled spirits administrator and malt beverage administrator will hear the appeals. The city's attorney will present its case, and the applicants will present theirs.
