While on a business trip, I stopped for gas somewhere between Montgomery and Auburn Alabama. They didn't support pay at the pump, so I went inside to pay for my gas. Once inside, I saw this:



Has anyone seen more taps inside a gas station than this? I count 31 taps. I have to admit, I've never seen draft beer sold at a gas station before.

thats awesome! We have a Citgo station here in Huntsville, that probably has the best beer selection in town of bottled beer.....You would just think it's a truck stop unless you went inside.....

Might be the best selection of draft beer in the state.

I have never seen that before.

Probably a holdover from the days when the only place you could get draft beer in Alabama was the county with the dog track, between Auburn and Montgomery.....it's been so long though, I forgot the names of the places.....

I stopped at an Exxon today and bought a 22oz bottle of GPBC Barrel Aged Coffee Oatmeal Stout. It's the only place in the state I've found that legally can sell big bottles. The beers were located next to the display case containing handguns (also for sale)!
