BETHEL, Alaska – New laws limiting the amount of alcohol that can be legally possessed took effect in a southwest Alaska community. KYUK-AM reported Bethel implemented the new limits after the city’s only liquor store was set to close.

A person of legal drinking age cannot possess more than 10.5 liters of distilled spirits, 24 liters of wine or either 12 gallons of beer or a half keg of beer holding about 15 gallons.

Luggage flown into Bethel will need to be labeled with an itemized invoice of any alcohol in the baggage.
