First, a number of liquor delivery services in Alabama have commenced operations, announced that they intended to do so, or took steps to be operational soon. Some of these services specialize in alcohol delivery (e.g., Drizly and Saucey) and others are well-known delivery services such as DoorDash, Uber Eats, etc. These services already have much of the necessary infrastructure and should be able to deliver alcohol in a relatively short time. Similar to the Liquor Delivery Act, there are safeguards for the direct shipment of wine.
Wine cannot be delivered to a school, dormitory, prison, health facility, locker, mailbox, warehouse or any other premises authorized by the council. Only wineries, not retailers, can ship wine to Alabama consumers. A distribution center can`t impersonate a retailer, but Alabama wineries can use fulfillment service providers that have obtained a wine distribution center license from ABC`s board of directors. Alabama is only the third state to impose licensing, reporting, and monitoring of distribution centers. Merle Haggard sang “I Think I`ll Just Stay Here and Drink”. For decades, Alabama`s outdated alcohol rules made this easier said than done in Yellowhammer State, as the supply of alcohol was banned and wine deliveries from outside the state were severely restricted. But two changes to alcohol distribution rules in the past year appear poised to dramatically and significantly change both the way Alabamians receive alcohol and the way alcohol manufacturers and distributors perceive the Alabama market. And although the two laws concern the supply of alcohol to consumers, they work in different and important ways.
We look at these laws and differences below. Just like we do with all the other alcohol laws in Alabama. It is still too early to get definitive figures on deliveries and deliveries of alcohol, as these laws came into force in October. But there is every reason to believe that the laws together will represent a seismic shift in the way Alabamians choose, receive and consume alcohol in the years to come. In addition, many other bills have been introduced during this Parliament and are uncertain about their fate at various stages of the legislative process. During this meeting, ABC`s Board of Directors reviewed 39 bills that deal with alcoholic beverages or affect any aspect of our regulatory functions. We haven`t seen that much bill in my 10 years as a director of ABC`s board of directors. Type of alcohol and if licence or permit required: Ind. Code §7.1-3-26-1 ff.
