I got this information directly off of the NC ABC website HERE.


Looks like 4L is the correct answer. Assuming a regular bottle is about 750ml that means you can legally purchase up to five normal sized bottles and bring them across the state line. I don't see anything about a time period so i guess you can make as many trips as you want in a day as long as you only bring across what is allowed.


Also unlimited kegs!





Q: How much alcoholic beverages can I buy and transport?
A: North Carolina State law allows the following amounts of beer and unfortified wine to be purchased and transported without a permit:
BEER Maximum of 80 liters I cans or bottles
(9) cases and (9) cans/bottles 355 milliliter (12 oz)
(7) cases and (1) can/bottle 473 milliliter (16 oz)
Kegs unlimited

UNFORTIFIED WINE Maximum of 50 liters
(10) 5 liter containers
(66) 750 milliliter bottles
(50) 1 liter bottles
(28) 1.75 liter bottles
SPIRITUOUS LIQUOR AND FORTIFIED WINE 8 liters
COMBINATION OF SPIRITUOUS LIQUOR AND FORTIFIED WINE 8 liters maximum
A person may only bring into the state 4 liters of fortified wine or spirituous liquor or a combination of the two.

A maximum of 100 liters of unfortified wine may be transported with a Purchase-Transportation permit. These free permits are issued by your local ABC store.

Another advantage for us living in UC is easy access to lower SC booze & gas price...

Good point. It occurs to me that if one is making a run to a S.C. liquor store and the gas tank is half full, it would be good to fill up on S.C. while making the liquor run and the cost of the extra gas down to S.C. would be offset by cheaper gas in S.C.

I've picked it up at the ABC in Morrisville/Cary (the one on Davis Drive at McCrimmon Pkwy) or in Holly Springs - I don't remember which. But if they have it at one, they can get it at any of them.
I have never seen it at the stores near me in Charlotte. But since the ones in SC always have it, I've never thought about trying to have them order it.

I have never seen that. I would think our police would have more important things to do.

Lets keep the standard high here in NC.
We pay enough in taxes every year to support an entire family. I'll buy my liquor where I can get a better selection at a better price.

I know plenty of people who work for private companies and have real jobs with real benefits.

In the incident that I described above, I think it was the ALE (Alcohol Law Enforcement) agents that were involved. I agree that CMPD should have better things to do.

The CMPD does not bother with any of the issues involving liquor purchases, regardless of the state where it was purchased. The local Mecklenburg ABC Commission has their own LEO's and their bosses get wrapped around the axle because so many resident of the area, especially those who live in South Charlotte go to SC and buy booze, gas, cars, and big ticket items where they can save because of the higher taxes in Meck Co.

So, after the lessons here, I'm buying booze in S.C. since the price of spirits and gasoline makes a trip down south well worth the trip. Thanks, y'all
