Bigger beer bottles coming this week

Posted: Updated:

  A new law taking effect this week will bring bigger beer bottles to retailers and restaurants.  It allows statewide sales of beer in bottles up to 25.4 ounces.  Currently, state law only allows beer bottles up to 16 ounces.

    Some counties had ordinances that allowed the larger bottles.

    Beers sold in the larger bottles are generally high-end craft beers.  Some Alabama breweries have already started bottling in he larger sizes- but those beers have not yet been put up for sale.
