Will this survive lawsuits by people affected by a drunk-driving incident with open container?

If you can 'over serve' or allow someone clearly drunk to leave your bar and get into a vehicle, then you're going to have liability issues on this.

it is so much cheaper to drink at home

There's drive thru liquor stores in existence where you can get booze for fractions of the cost of booze at a bar... why on earth would you buy it from a bar if you can't go to the bar?

I mean, if your bar is a super awesome hang and you want to support them in these dire times, I suppose I can understand that temporarily, but once this is all behind us... why the hell would you want to buy booze from a bar TO GO?

People are weird.

Ah, but with grocery delivery on the rise, are they allowed to deliver beer, wine, and liquor?

Grocery is sealed and the consumer would have to open it in violation of the law.
Treating an alcoholic beverage like a soda, without being 'sealed' and presumably just set in the cup holder opens up a lot of grey area in the law. IMNAL but I am a Wisconsinite

The law requires products sold to go to be in sealed containers that cannot be unsealed without visible evidence.

There is a requirement for them to be in sealed containers.

In effect this will be no different than buying from a store, it just allows bars to repackage booze.

Something will happen.  Porno stores are all but history, because other delivery methods are now common.  Next year, my 3D Printer should deliver fine whiskey in a nice looking bottle and this Iowa innovation will be last years news.
