Top 10 Strange Alcohol Laws

1. Ohio - It is illegal to get a fish drunk.

2. Alaska – In Fairbanks, AK, it is illegal to serve an alcoholic beverages to


moose. I’m pretty sure Sarah Palin had nothing to do with this law…

2. New York – According to the New York State Liquor Authority, you can buy
wine, wine glasses, wine stoppers and corkscrews at a liquor store, but the state of
New York prohibits them from selling wine gift bags. Sell a gift bag to a wine
buying customer and you’ll be fined $10,000.

3. Colorado - law requires that wine be sold in containers of at least 24 ounces


and spirits in containers at least a fifth of a gallon. But, at the same time, it also decrees that no alcohol
beverage can be stored in hotel minibars in anything larger than miniature containers.

4. Missouri – In St. Louis, it is illegal to sit on a street curb and drink beer from
a bucket.

5. Nebraska - It is illegal for a bar to sell beer unless it is simultaneously


brewing a kettle of soup. This one makes a lot of sense to our legal staff because if
you are drinking beer you are going to need some soup.

6. Iowa - It is still illegal for men to drink beer while they are in bed with their
wives…It’s also is illegal to “run a tab” in Iowa.

7. Texas - The entire Encyclopedia Britannica is banned in Texas because it


contains a recipe for making beer that could be used at home.

8. Florida - Don't plan on using any of the celebratory Champagne bottle sizes
known as Methuselahs, Salamanazars, Balthazars or Nebuchadnezzars. These
very traditional large format Champagne bottle sizes are all illegal in Florida.

9. Texas and Ohio - The French wine, "Fat Bastard" is banned in both these States as the name is
considered offensive..

10. California - No alcohol beverages can be displayed within five feet of a cash
register of any store in California that sells both alcohol and motor fuel.
