Virus Law – Curbside Liquor

Alabama alcohol licensees got a little good news from the ABC, after enduring a series of blows stemming from the COVID-19 outbreak.

Restaurants, bars, breweries, and brewpubs can now sell alcoholic beverages “using curbside pick-up or take-out services.” Each customer can get up to one bottle of wine, a bottle of liquor (750 ml), or a six pack of beer.

Sales must be in sealed, unopened containers—so no to-go cups or opened bottles. Although the ABC’s new order doesn’t specifically address growlers or crowlers (for draft beer), the ABC typically allows such containers for off-premises consumption provided they are properly sealed, so it’s safe to assume such containers below 72 oz are included in the order.

As is typical, the servers who process and handle these sales must be over 21 and must ID as the Alabama ABC normally requires.
