No, 4-8 is the only time you can't buy alcohol in New York, on premises. Off premise beer is 24/7 except for 3-8 on Sunday.

I was really surprised to see liquor in grocery stores when I came to Arizona.
Grocery stores in Wisconsin and Michigan sell liquor.

Oklahoma is up there thanks to the political influence of the Baptist church. Grocery/convenience stores can only sell beer up to 3.2% ABV. Full-strength beer, wine, and liquor must be sold in liquor stores. Liquor stores must close by 9PM and must close on Sunday, and nothing can be refrigerated. Oklahoma is also the only state where Big Beer doesn't even offer their full-strength product. These draconian laws are on their last leg though as the state voted to do away with them in 2016. That finally goes into affect at the end of this year.

Utah has similar laws. I believe you can purchase cold beer there but you can only get 3.2% ABV on tap (which is stricter than Oklahoma).

True. Some supermarkets can sell beer, and wine if they set up some time of "café", or place where you can drink it. Most people just buy it, and take it home. The beer distributors went nuts. Also, you can only buy liquor at state liquor stores run by the state Liquor Control Board.

Kentucky has some dry counties. There are Bourbon distillers in those counties that can make it but can't sell it there.

I noticed that there seems to be no correlation between liberal/conservative and liquor laws

In NC, you can buy beer and wine at the grocery store and convenience stores. Anything stronger than that, you have to go to the state-run ABC store or a bar/restaurant.
