MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WTVY) -Home delivery of beer and wine would be allowed in Alabama if a proposal is approved by state lawmakers.

Rep. Gil Isbell (R-Anniston) has pre-filed a bill that would allow alcohol to be delivered much the same as grocers and restaurants deliver their products. Orders could be placed by phone or online.

Those making deliveries must be approved by the Alabama Beverage Control Board and there would be limits on the amount of alcohol allowed.

“Any beer or wine delivered to an individual shall not exceed, by volume, the equivalent of 48 12-ounce containers of beer and six 750-milliliter bottles of wine in any single 24-hour period,” the bill states.

Customers must provide identification verifying they are at least 21 years old and deliveries would not be allowed to anyone who appears intoxicated. Deliveries would also be prohibited on school campuses, including Alabama colleges and universities.

The bill will be considered in the legislative session scheduled to begin February 2.
