About Alabama and Fungi

Finally I've found a website that refers to Alabama and fungi which is not this one. Actually, it refers to one of my favorite fungally-derived products, beer. Not that I have anything against bread, I guess you could say I like fermentation in many forms (though definitely not all forms). Anyway, this site has some information on some of Alabama's rather obscure blue laws. For example, I didn't know that beer had to be below 6% alcohol, or that you can only buy containers smaller than 1 pint (and I'm not sure where kegs fit into the whole picture). These folks are trying to get the laws changed so we can buy half-litres of barleywine here, instead of in Georgia.
