Alabama Proposed Keg Ban Bill is Dead

The Mobile Register reported that the proposed-Alabama Keg Ban bill has died in House committee. A version had already passed in the Senate, but now that the House has killed it, it at least won't pass this year.

The bill would have restricted sales of Kegs to private individuals. The "cover story" was that this was being done to curb underage drinking, but in reality, it was an effort by Alabama beer distributors to increase their profits; bottles & cans have a higher profit margin for distributors than kegs do.
