How will Alabama’s 2021 Limited Release Sweepstakes work?

 

The Alabama ABC will hold a Sweepstakes to determine the top 100 places in line at a Limited Release event.  The event in question will be held at eight ABC Select Spirits Stores.  The event will take place on Monday, November 8, 2021.  Winners will be assigned a designated time to arrive, register, line up and enter the store based on their awarded position.  For a full list of Sweepstakes winners assigned time slots, click here.  At the assigned time participants will be able to register on the property.  A winner’s registration tent will be on site.  All participants will be required to pass a temperature check and confirm that they are free of any COVID-19 symptoms before they will be allowed to take their place in line.  All participants will be required to wear a mask in accordance with State and local mandates while in the registration line, in the Whiskey Release line and while in the store.  The first 25 Sweepstakes winners will be allowed to begin registration at 8:00 AM CST.  No participant will be allowed on the property prior to their assigned time slot.  All winners not in checked in and in line at their assigned time, will forfeit their position in line.  The store will open for business at 9:00 AM CST.

The second name will be awarded position number 2 and so on until all 100 guaranteed positions are awarded.  

 

At 8:00 AM CST on November 8, 2021, the store will welcome any person of legal drinking age (21) that does not have a guaranteed position in line to participate in the walk-up line.  A separate walk-up tent will be on each property.  The participants in this line will be assigned timed slots in groups of 25.  These groups will be allowed on the property at the assigned time and asked to line up.  They will enter the store in the order in which they arrived AFTER the Sweepstakes winners have entered.  For a full list of assigned walk-up time slots, click here.

The name on the ID and the name on the entry sheet must match exactly All Sweepstakes winners and walk-up participants NOT present and in line at their assigned time will be disqualified and the line will adjust to absorb the missing participant’s position in line.
