The Battle for Craft Beer: "Home-brewing is currently illegal in Alabama. A brewpub can only operate in a historical building situated in a county that sold alcohol pre-Prohibition. You can be fined for bringing two cases of beer into dry counties. And most problematic for craft-suds fiends like Carter, Alabama (along with Mississippi and West Virginia) prohibits the sale of beer that’s higher than 6 percent alcohol by volume (5 percent alcohol by weight)—just a bit stronger than a Budweiser (which has 5 percent ABV)."
Whoa, I knew that there were goofy laws on the books, state liquor stores, dry sundays, and the ilk. But, capping beer alcohol percent is cruel and quite odd.
