They'll Pry This Keg From My Cold Dead Fingers


The Alabama Senate has passed as bill, pushed by the Alabama Wholesale Beer Association, that would effectively ban private keg parties. Not to worry, the state House of Representatives probably won't pass it. But it may pass a competing bill that would require retailers to maintain written records of everyone who buys a beer keg and to charge a $1 processing fee that retailers would split with the state. The sponsors of both bills say they are aimed at reducing drinking by people under 21.
