Troy City Council Approves Resolution For Draft Beer


By Sarah Cantey

 Draft beer is one step closer to being allowed on Troy restaurants and bars' menus. The council passed a resolution tonight allowing on-premise draft sales and now it is in the hands of the Alabama Legislature. 

This is only for on-site consumption, meaning you can't walk out of a liquor or convenience store with a keg. While Troy's resolution is headed to the state house, Pike County commissioners are also asking lawmakers to allow this county wide.
If approved each city would have the option to send draft sales to a vote or simply pass a resolution like Troy. Brundidge residents have mixed feelings.
Sheri Lucas said, "People are going to buy beer anyway so whether it's draft or from a store it really doesn't matter."
Linda Walker said, "I think it really depends on the atmosphere of the business. Because a lot of the businesses are family oriented and I don't think anything should be done in that atmosphere."
Troy restaurants will have to wait a few more weeks before kegs are allowed. Since the resolution will have to be advertised through March 8th, the council will not hear back from the state legislature until after that date.
