I was meaning we still have some "dry" areas in Georgia where you can't even buy alcohol.
•Brooks County prohibits the sale of alcohol except beer and wine, with no sales on Sunday. The city of Quitman, within Brooks County, has allowed the sale of alcohol other than beer and wine in restaurants only since 2005. The new law was passed by Quitman voters despite fierce opposition from local religious and community leaders.
•Bulloch County was previously a partially dry county, but a referendum in 1998 removed the ban on alcoholic beverages.
•Coweta County is a partially dry county.
•Dawson County, was historically noted for being a heavy Moonshine county but was a dry county until recently with the first package store opening on July 27, 2007.
•Effingham County, near Savannah, Georgia, is a partially dry county. Sale of liquor is prohibited, but the sale of beer and wine is allowed.
•Fannin County is a partially dry county, allowing for the sale of beer in restaurants only.
•Franklin County is a dry county, though several towns within the county are not.
•Murray County, in northwest Georgia, is a dry county, although the city of Eton allows the sale of liquor at a local level.
•Hart County in northeast Georgia is currently a dry county which prohibits the sale of liquor, yet a referendum was voted on in the general election on November 6, 2007 to allow the sale of liquor by the drink.
•Union County is a dry county.
•Upson County is a dry county.
•White County, in northeast Georgia, is a dry county except in the city limits of Helen, Georgia and beer and wine outside of the city limits of Cleveland, Georgia (effective January 1, 2009). In Helen alcohol can be served and sold, and is known to be a DUI trap, as there is only a single route into and out of town, along Georgia State Route 75.
