wtf japan God I hate Alabama. A little background: Tuscaloosa just got a new Mercedes plant. The poor imported workers, shocked by an environment that could easily be mistaken for a hotter, more depressing version of the GDR, undoubtedly seek the numbing comfort of a beer that is merely palatable. Reps. Grady Wilson and Bubba Bexley, however, will be having none of that. Dirty Krauts can drink Ripple like the rest of us.
phalsebob And what is the back story? You can't buy German beer in Alabamy?
Testicles of Doom Alabamy has a lot of strange alcohol laws that vary by county to county, so the fact that an imported beer is contraband isn't a surprise.
wtf japan Not imported beer per se: you can't buy beer with over 6% alcohol by volume. Many microbreweries, including some in bama, would like to sell their specialty beers there but are unable to due to this restriction.
