Georgia Makes Way for Full-Fledged Big Hoppy Monster

Big Hoppy Monster is a red ale with an alcohol content of 7.5%. That makes it illegal in a handful of states that limit the maximum alcohol percentage available in beer at 6 percent. After July 1, Georgia will no longer be one of those states, as its maximum alcohol content for beer is being raised from 6 to 14 percent. The reform follows seven years of lobbying by Georgians For World Class Beer (GWB, er GWCB); they offer a helpful history of 20th Century beer regulation in Georgia here.
