Default Alcohol laws in NC

Hey everyone,
I will be visting NC in about once week - and I am unsure about alcohol regulations. I will want to buy my evening beer (40 y old here ) and not sure if that requires a state shop, supermarket, gas station, whatever ... what are the regulations to buy beer in NC?

you can buy beer just about anywhere (grocery store, gas station, etc). liqueur is from the ABC store.

We still have the Sunday rule. And, of course, liquor stores are closed on Sundays.

You can't buy it until noon on Sunday.

Also, in some counties, grocery stores can't sell beer unless they're within the limits of certain cities - or something like that.

Where are you visiting? Some areas are still dry, or semi-dry. Assuming you're visiting a metro area, you'll be fine.

The regulations by county and city are addressed through the NC ABC (Alcoholic Beverage Control) commission. You can look at a map or choose the specific regulations for a city or county you're interested in here:

When you go to Asheville, make sure to check out some of the brewpubs. Asheville was voted Beer City USA for the 2nd year in a row, I think they have most breweries per capita or something like that.
