I'm curious as to how many dry counties there are in Ga. and where they are located. I've searched everywhere I can think to search, but cannot find any info on this topic for Ga. So if you live in or near a dry county let me know. So far I know most are located in North Ga. Fannin County will vote on a referendum in Nov. about allowing pouring in restaurants. So would like to have an idea just how many dry counties are left in Ga.

The problem is that cities within counties can choose to be dry while the rest of the county is wet.

One little town near us has always voted to keep the town dry from the east side of the railroad track to the eastern city limits. West of the rail road tracks is wet. Guess where the first package shop is.

Bleckley County calls itself dry, but it's not like the county we lived in in NC (no alcohol sales at all). It actually sells beer and wine, just no hard liquor.

I'm driving home from work on I-575. And it is always raining in Woodstock and always dry in Canton, just few miles apart. Canton is where mountains starts.

Oktoberfest wouldn't be much fun without beer, now, would it?
