I can't find one anywhere. I've seen them for Texas, Kansas, and Kentucky, but that's it. I was told that every states' ATB (is that the right dept?) should have one, but using a search on some of them, no luck. Wikipedia, no luck. I'm intrigued by this whole wet/dry thing and would love a list - would be interesting for demographics/sociology - but am at my wits end to find one, even for individual states!

I think in most of America, if you want alcohol, its not very difficult to get, no matter your age or location. Pretty much sells itself, unfortuately.

Every state, every county, every city has its own definition of wet or dry. Some places are totally dry - no alcohol. Others allow beer or wine, others allow it under a certain alcohol percentage. Do you mean by the drink? In a package? Liquor only? There are too many laws and too many variables to just make up a "wet" and "dry" list.

It would be interesting to see the effects of the dry counties vs. non dry, unemployment, crime, health stats, etc but doing so you would have to check each & every county nationwide which would drive a guy to drinkin just doing that lol.

Andrews County in Texas is dry.... but there is an election next month that may change that. Several other West Texas counties are dry. They have been doing a lot of research in terms of "standards vs. profit".

Yes I live in Arkansas, Sharp county, and I have to drive 40 miles to buy beer. Most of the time I go to Missouri as it is the same distance and the beer is cheaper. This takes tax money out of Arkansas and sometimes I buy groceries there too as it's cheaper and I'm already there. I have heard rumors that the churches buy up all the liquor licenses to keep alcohol out. I don't know about all that. Seems to me though it's easier to get drugs like crytal meth around here than a good cold beer. Don't make a lot of sense to me. I thought they repealed prohibition years ago, but I guess what I learned in school was wrong, eh?

Nobody has even mentioned the dry capital UT!!! Salt Lake has "state liquor stores"... You have to drive 10-12 miles to one. Not to mention they're closed on Sundays. Suppose there must be completely dry counties, too. Was having dinner once on the road and couldn't believe my ears they wouldn't even give me beer! Good grief!

Remember having to find liquor stores in CO, too... What's the deal with this BS...?! We've got all the booze we need in our grocery stores.
