Alabama bans 'Dirty Bastard' beer

You can buy Fat Bastard wine in Alabama, but you'll have to go elsewhere for Dirty Bastard beer.
The state alcoholic beverage control agency said Thursday it has banned Dirty Bastard beer because of profanity on its label. But the maker, Michigan-based Founders Brewing, can appeal the decision to the agency's board.
The state allows the sale of Fat Bastard wine. But board attorney Bob Martin says the brand was approved years ago, and he doesn't know the circumstances.
Alabama gained notice a few years ago for banning a wine brand that featured a nude nymph on its label. Its decision on the beer is opposed by Free The Hops, a group that advocates for new beer brands in Alabama.
