    Re: How Dry is Dry, Anyway?

    I came across the following information about control and license states on the U.S. Department of Transportation web site.

    Control States control the sale of distilled spirits and in some cases, wine, through government agencies at the wholesale level. There are 18 Control States (Alabama, Idaho, Iowa, Maine, Michigan, Mississippi, Montana, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wyoming) and one county (Montgomery County, Maryland). The remaining 32 States are License States, where the wholesale and retail sales of distilled spirits and wine are wholly in the hands of private sellers.

    Thanks!

    The common denominator, if there is one, is that the north-east seems to be overrepresented and the west wholly absent.

    The west is not wholly absent: Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming is 6 of the 18 control states. And some might call Iowa a western state.

    Ooops! Guilty as charged.

    Henceforth IŽll keep my reading glasses close at hand while checking posts.
