United States of Alcohol

four beer taps


If you enjoy imbibing adult beverages, and also do a lot of traveling from state to state, you may have found that the laws vary dramatically depending on which of these great United States you’re in.

In fact, it can be downright baffling. I once ordered a six pack of beers near closing time in a bar in Texas, and they handed me six opened beers, scolding me when I said I wanted to take them home; something completely legal in Pennsylvania.

To that end, I’ve created a simple to use little web app that works on everything from desktops to mobile phones: The United States of Alcohol, a guide to alcohol laws by state.
