BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - 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 Co., 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.
