As if July 1, Birmingham can authorize food and beverage trucks to sell alcoholic beverages in entertainment districts

Act No. 2022-432
by Rep. Neil Rafferty, D-Birmingham

Starting July 1, the city of Birmingham can allow food and beverage trucks to sell alcohol in open containers within Birmingham’s entertainment districts.

The fee for the alcohol licenses for such food or beverage trucks will increase from $150 to $300, which the legislation’s sponsor, Rep. Neil Rafferty, D-Birmingham, said is “on par with brick-and-mortar” establishments. The law allows for the purchase of only one drink per sale. It does not include food or beverage carts that are not motorized.

As of June 1, Birmingham can authorize up to 15 entertainment districts, under legislation enacted in March.
