2018 Code of Alabama
Title 28 - INTOXICATING LIQUOR, MALT BEVERAGES AND WINE.
Chapter 4A - ALABAMA BREWPUB ACT.
Section 28-4A-6 - Legislative findings.
The Legislature finds that it is in the best interest of the public welfare of the State of Alabama to preserve and redevelop the downtown municipal areas and registered historic districts and certain economically distressed areas of this state and to further promote the preservation and redevelopment of historic buildings and sites. The Legislature finds that an effective way of facilitating the urban redevelopment program and the preservation of historic buildings and sites, and registered historic districts and any economically distressed area designated as suitable by the municipal or county governing body is by creating a single exception to the existing alcoholic beverage laws to authorize and permit the establishment of brewpubs located in such historic buildings, sites, or districts in urban redevelopment areas or economically distressed areas of those municipalities located within counties where the brewing of beer for consumption by the public had historically been located. The policy and intent of the Legislature in the enactment of this chapter is to promote the public welfare by further regulating and controlling alcoholic beverage transactions in Alabama under the control and supervision of the Alabama Alcoholic Beverage Control Board to accomplish this legislative purpose set forth herein.(Acts 1992, No. 92-535, p. 1078, §6; Act 2011-630, p. 1488, §2.)
