Cool article.

NY Police used to be allowed two beers at lunch while on duty. I can't see that ever happening in Alabama.

When we lived in Schertz(Texas), my dad was a mail carrier. Every day at lunch he would have my mother
bring him two tall beers which he would drink sitting on the curb.
This was at a time when you was allowed to have an open beer with you while driving a vehicle.
