Craft Beer Boom in Alabama

A Craft Beer Boom is Brewing in Alabama

A beer revolution is brewing in Alabama. Drinkers thirsty for something

other than Budweiser or Miller didn’'t have many choices in the state

just a few years ago, but a series of laws passed since 2009 has opened

up Alabama to the world of high-alcohol specialty beers, neighborhood

brew pubs and microbreweries. It’s a big change in a Bible Belt state

that still has dry counties and legally banned home beer brewing and

wine making until this year.
