Alabama OKs Selling Bastard-Named Beers

Alabama OKs Selling Bastard-Named Beers

The state lifted its ban for the Michigan-brewed beers

Alabama will now allow the sale of bastard-named beers, like the Backwoods Bastard specialty beer.

Remember back when Idaho first banned Five Wives Vodka for its (seemingly polygamist) name, and then changed its mind? Seems that the state of Alabama is playing the same game. Alabama has now lifted a ban on selling beers with the name "bastard" in them.

Specifically, it was Dirty Bastard and Backwoods Bastard beers that were banned, made by Founders Brewing Co. in Michigan. Although Founders is distributed in 23 states, the Associated Press reports, Alabama was the only state to have a problem with a name. The Alabama Alcoholic Beverage Control Board reportedly banned the beers from sale because beer and wine are sold in grocery stores, and many were concerned that children might see the beers on shelves.

Although the board didn't give a specific reason why it changed its mind, some say that another bastardly named product might have something to do with it. Fat Bastard wine, a popular wine in Alabama, would have also been banned if Founders' brews were banned.

You can toast to Founders' newest success with the Dirty Bastard, a Scotch ale, and Backwoods Bastard, a specialty beer to be released in September.


The 64 Best Sports Books of All Time

The link between sports and literature dates practically to the advent of the written word, as far back as the Epic Of Gilgamesh and its tests of strength or The Iliad with its ritualized funeral games. Ever since, the greatest writers among us have been inclined again and again to test their mettle with the stories of those who dare step into the arena. The relationship between writer and athlete is symbiotic and empathetic. Both seek to understand themselves by means of the most stringent test of wills. Both know failure as often as triumph — more often probably.

60 Books Every Man Should Read

In an era of immersive access and on-demand highlight reels, it is tempting to think of the descriptive power of sportswriting as a romantic relic of bygone days. Who needs to be told what happened when they can see it for themselves, all day long, on any number of a dozen high-def screens they happen by? Our contention is the opposite. Great sportswriting has never been more important, or more vital to our connection to the athletes and games we treasure. To see a windmill dunk or a one-punch knockout from twenty-nine different angles is not to understand it better, or to know why it matters. Great sportswriting is about the bigger picture, the social context, the consequences and the sepia-toned nostalgia. It’s an awareness that the living history of the games is our shared legacy and communion.

Here’s a handful of the greatest sports books ever written, at least the way we see it. Hope you will dive in and agree on these.
