Beer can be sold in Alabama on Sundays, depending on the county. As of 2011, 12 counties and five cities had legalized the sale of beer on Sundays, with that number expected to increase.
Of the counties that have legalized beer sales on Sundays, most will not allow beer sales until noon. Tourism has been cited as the reason for the recent change of heart regarding beer sales. Private clubs are exempt from these rules, as they can sell beer on Sundays unrestricted. However, these private clubs require a membership as well as a membership fee in order to gain entrance to the establishment.
