You can now get good beer. Alabama recently repealed their absurd law that beer that exceeded 6% alcohol could not be sold. This rules out many, if not most, of the best beers in the world. This is a good example of alcohol regulation that does more harm than good - by treating beer as a harmful beverage, Alabamans could not get exposed to beer that is more about the taste than the alcohol, further promoting the idea that beer is only for getting buzzed. It looks like the Alabama legislature finally wised up to the idea that if you treat alcohol as a dangerous beverage then people will behave irresponsibly with it.
