Not quite everyone else. One of the draw backs to being in the bible belt is the stupid alcohol laws.

Re: Important

It is interesting how you can't buy alcohol from a store on Sunday, but yet you go to a bar that serves food and you can buy alcohol there (not sure if only to consumed in there or carry out).

Plenty of dry counties around here too. Then there are dry counties that have cities inside them that are not dry. It can get confusing real quick.

On the flip side though, there are a lot more breweries starting to set up shop in NC, and that makes me happy

Re: Important

My desk is horrible but not as bad as Jeds. Hopefully getting a filing cabinet soon so I can move some of the clutter into that.

I think Michigan started selling on Sundays a couple years ago.

Ohio let liquor sales happen on Sunday a few years back. Tax revenue.

and we can carry in a bar, as long as you're not above the legal limit you can drink too.

They just changed the law in NC recently to allow us to carry into an establishment that serves alcohol ONLY if they serve food too.

Before it was not allowed into any establishment that served alcohol. Period.

It has to be consumed there. On-premises and off-premises sales are treated differently and you need different licenses for each. So even if a restaurant/bar had an off-premises license, they would be subject to the law preventing off-premises sales on Sunday. The brewery exemption is the only way I can get beer to my house on a Sunday without driving to Illinois.

The on-premises vs. off-premises difference also explains why a bartender will open a bottle or can before handing it to you. It's not just to be nice or to earn a tip, it's so you don't pull a "can I get 13 beers, please?" and walk out with them.
