A new law offers new possibilities for beer lovers in Alabama. Beginning next week, some brews will be sold in much larger bottles.
Friday, Jimmy Gorji, owner of the Highland Package Store, was clearing out cooler space for the next generation of beer hitting the Alabama market.
"First of all business is changing, Alabama is changing. A lot of beer is coming August 1," he said. "We purchased a brand new cooler. So we've been ready almost two weeks."
The bottles will tower over the competition when bottles of beer as big as 22 ounces will be sold around the state.
Gorji says he'll sell these new bottles as singles, not in a six pack. You'll also pay more to drink them as some of the international brands can run anywhere from $6 to $10.
"I think it's good. I think it'll allow for a wider selection and different options and more stuff customers can choose from," Gorji said.
