Default screwed up beer laws

We have some screwy beer laws in Oklahoma.

*If you want to buy anything stronger than 3.2, you have to buy it in the liquor store.

*The liquor store can only sell things that contain alcohol. Want ice? Sorry!

*Did I mention that liquor store beer has to be sold cold.

*Anything that's sold in gas stations or grocery stores as 3.2 can't be sold in liquor stores as strong beer..

*However, there are no dry counties in Oklahoma, and

*You can buy 3.2 on Sunday but,

* The liquor stores will only sell alcohol from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday-Saturday.

I know that other states have some screwed up beer laws. You should tell us about some screwy law you have.

We're all sorts of inconsistant in Illinois. I lived in a neighborhood that you couldn't buy beer after 9:00pm on weekdays and 10:00pm on weekends. In some areas, you can only buy beer or wine in the grocery stores. We have some dry counties.

In my town, there are stores that sell until 4:00am and a few bars still open that serve till 4:00am. Some of the gambling boats start selling at 6:00am.

At least now you can get a drink in a restaurant...wasn't too long ago when you couldn't. Also, you have nudie bars that are really nudie...tho it sucks that you can only drink 3.2 beer in them. Also you can now find an occasional decent beer there...and the labeling requirements for liquor stores aren't nearly as strict as they are in Texas for instance (you now have a much better selection of imports then we do down here). You should count your blessings...during the sixties if you wanted to cop a buzz your choices were basically coors or ripple.

Liquor store beer has to be sold cold? Seems like when I lived there (born and raised, left there 12 years ago), it couldn't be sold cold.

I'm moving to OKC next year. I fear that I'm moving to beer purgatory. Good thing I know how to brew!

With all due respect to the place I grew up in, you're just moving to purgatory, period.

I would think the laws in OK have a lot to do with curbing alcoholism among the Native Americans.

Dude, my bad. I had had a few home brew's last night. It has to be sold hot. Sorry to spread bad info!

Pistolero, you're right our beer laws have come a long way and I've noticed that we do have a better selection of imports in our better liquor stores than you guys do.

Oh yeah, I guess it was time for OU to get a whipping, huh? I'm not a big fan either way, but I did enjoy us beating on Texas for the last five years. It's kind of nice to see the pendulum swing a little, though.

Nah, I think it's just a bible belt morality type issue. Carrie Nation lives!

Ahh, thanks. Not that I have a problem with beer being sold cold, but to me, that would mean less storage space, which in turn would mean less selection!

El P: Besides a more limited beer selection, I'm looking forward to a little slower-paced area to live. This place is way to friggin' crowded, considering how (relatively) small it is. Plus, it's home, so it's a purgatory I'm familiar with.
