As I remember stories about places in the US wich do not allow ANY kind of alcoholic beverages.
Entire cities or counties without alcohol.
Do they still exist, and why?

Bell County, Kentucky is a dry county. Do not know why.

The county that borders FT Knox was in the 90s. Not sure if it still is.

They get fewer in number every year.

My home county was dry until approx. 5 years ago.

The Southern Baptist Churches finally got outnumbered.

What I think is really fucked up is that there are still states in this country where you have to buy hard liquor from a state run store at twice the free market price. I don't know what it is about Baptists. They really seem to hate alcohol when they're sober.

When I lived in Indiana 2003-2007 you couldnt buy alcohol on Sundays.
Link Posted: 4/27/2014 1:20:31 PM EDT
No bueno on Sundays..
Link Posted: 4/27/2014 1:21:03 PM EDT
heck yeah.

county south of me just voted to go wet last year.

the package stores on the state line all closed within 6 months of the law passing.

it was a bit comical to see the crowds on Friday nights driving, buying, turning around and driving back.

It was illegal to sell, no liquor by the drink, but personal possession and consumption at home was okay.


Link Posted: 4/27/2014 1:21:43 PM EDT
And nearly every one of these dry areas probably has a disproportionate number of alcoholics and plain ol' drunks living in them!
Link Posted: 4/27/2014 1:21:46 PM EDT
I live in a dry county.

Until just a few years ago the only place you could get a drink was at a country club (or a few select private clubs). Now there are licensed clubs all over. No liquor stores allowed but a short drive puts you over the county line so no problem. It isn't illegal to have booze here, you just can't sell it in a store. Pretty pointless actually.

I believe the map differentiates between dry counties and dry states.

Though that would make Indiana semi-dry, rather than totally dry.

This. I built dairies in several dry counties in tx. They would send one of the parts runners once a week to another county to buy 50-60 cases of beer and 20 or 30 gallons of liquor to keep the jobsite going for the week.

I'd never thought of that. It makes sense.

Everywhere in California is dry from 2:00 AM until 6:00 AM every day.

Funny you mention this. PA state store employee union ad in paper today urged PA to keep current system intact for the safety of the children. The ad says that NC had one child per week die in underage drinking related crashes after they privatized. Local 776s ad didn't mention if any NC kids died in underage drinking related crashed before NC privatized their system.

A lot of counties in KY are.

I have always been struck by the irony of a state famous for making booze, in which we have more barrels of bourbon than we have people, that so much of the state is so up tight about booze.

Same reason you still can't legally buy weed in most places. Moral busybodies who can't just mind their own business and feel the need to constantly try and improve others.

All over Arkansas. I live in a dry community in Pulaski County Arkansas, where Little Rock is. The fucked up part of it is, that the community is no longer a legal entity, but the law was passed via the county, so that law is still in effect.
I work DUIs all the fucking time.

Here in Ohio we have a political divison called "townships" which are larger than cites in some cases but smaller than counties. Some of them are dry. I used to live in a dry township and had to drive to the next township to buy a 12 pack of beer. I know there are still dry counties in Kentucky.

Because Jesus, that's why. I don't get it either. The Man turned water into wine. Good stuff, too from what I've been told.
If anything, that should tell people that God don't care if you get sloshed.

Go figure
