I never thought I'd say this, but after leaving the state over twenty years ago, I'm starting to consider moving back to be near family. My parents live between Corinth and Tupelo, and I have brothers scattered from Ripley to Ridgeland.

I grew up in north Mississippi, graduated from Ole Miss and MS College, so I'm familiar with the state. When I left, there were still a lot of dry counties, especially in the north. Is that still the case? We're not alcoholics by any means, but we do enjoy having wine with meals, and having a beer on a hot day.

I know that areas like Tupelo and Oxford are wet, but what about the more rural counties like Tippah, Prentiss, and Benton?

Mississippi's Wet/Dry Map (Beer)

From the Mississippi Tax Commission.

There are 36 (of 82) counties in Mississippi that are dry for beer sales. Within these 36 counties, there are numerous municipalities that are wet for beer sales. These are municipalities that have voted to allow beer sales or are in qualified resort areas. Unlike the laws dealing with hard liquor, a municipality with a population over 2,500 located in a dry county for beer or liquor may hold an election to allow legal beer sales within the city. Referendums on the sale of beer can only be held every 5 years.

I have bought beer in Jones County outside of the cities of Ellisville and Laurel. How old is that map?
