Passing this law does not necessarily mean that "better" beer will be brought into this state. It is true that most Craft brewers make "special" or "seasonal" beers in the 750ml containers, but it does not mean better or bigger craft brewers will line up to come into Alabama. For example, Dogfish Head....they are at capacity and are pulling out of some smaller volume states in order to keep large markets flush with beer. Coming into Alabama is more about potential volume gains and capacity issues than a specific package law. The high gravity law passed a few years ago was and will be responisble for allowing All Craft Breweries to sell beer in Alabama. It is now completely up to the specific breweries to decide if expansion into Alabama is viable under their current capacity levels.
The big boys, MillerCoors, ABI, Corona, and Heineken USA are all wanting the law to pass to allow the larger serving vessels to be sold. At 24oz it still falls into the current state tax for a case of beer. The big volume vessels are not enough to scare the big boys as they will sell the majority of them with close to 250 thousand cases or more annually. Even the largest Craft brewer will not sell 2000 of these annually in the state.
