    As a born and raised Alabamian it makes me extremely happy to see the beer laws steadily getting less and less stringent. Too bad it wasn't this way when I lived there.

    I think there is a bottle size limit. Maybe Oaked bastard will be there in six packs.

    So... Dirty Fat Backwoods 12 ounce bastards are ok. But BIG bastards are still iffy?

    Not any more! 1 August, container size limit went up to 25.4oz!

    Also, Stone does not distribute in AL yet. Their loss :p

    Looks like Alabama had a epiphany, beer wise.

    No. It's the result of thousands of hours of patient work by thousands of Alabamians working to change the laws.

    that and them realizing that they were losing business and depriving themselves of revenue dollars at a time when most states are in the red.

    Yeah they probably still have a problem with the label "Arrogant". I mean seriously, a law against "Bastard" labeled products...I am sure they have bigger problems than that, as do all other states in this country. Unbelievable!!! Off of my soapbox...carry on.

    Stone are not in Alabama, so there is no way to tell what, if anything, will happen when they come here.

    How about stuff like Bitch Creek, Old Leghumper, Old Chub, Lucifer and what ever else is suggestive? Too edgy for the square state of Alabama?

    Of the above, only Oskar Blues (ALL of their beers) and Lucifer are for sale in Alabama. And the whole point of this thread is that the ABC caved on the restriction of the Bastard named beers.
