Did you know that citizens in thirteen Alabama counties (highlighted below in yellow) can already buy beer in containers larger than 16 ounces?
Doesn’t the whole state of Alabama deserve that same freedom and the economic growth that springs from that? Retailers in Jefferson, Madison, Mobile and all other wet counties should have the same opportunity to sell larger bottles and cans. If citizens in those thirteen counties can buy beer in containers above 16 ounces, why can’t citizens in the other wet counties as well?
Does all of this sound ridiculous? Then we need your help.
The Alabama breweries are growing and would also like to have the revenue that comes from the Gourmet Bottle Bill’s passage.
Please contact your representative expressing your support for SB294. If your House Representative is from a wet county that does not allow beer in containers above 16 ounces then they should vote “yes” for SB294 so that all Alabamians have equal opportunity. If your House Representative is from a wet county that does allow beer in containers above 16 ounces then they should vote “yes” for SB294 too as it would not be fair for their citizens to be able to purchase beer in larger containers while denying Alabamians from other counties that right.
