Q:

What are the dry counties in Tennessee?

A:

Tennessee has 95 counties, many of which are dry counties that forbid the sale of liquor by the drink. Some Tennessee counties also don't allow sales in retail packaging.

Dry counties in Tennessee may fall under one of two categories: those that do not allow liquor sale by the drink (LBD) and those that do not permit retail package stores.

The following counties do not allow liquor sales by the drink: Anderson, Bedford, Bledsoe, Bradley, Campbell, Cannon, Carroll, Carter, Cheatham, Chester, Claiborne, Clay, Cocke, Coffee, Crockett, Cumberland, Decatur, Dickson, Dyer, Fayette, Fentress, Franklin, Gibson, Giles, Grainger, Greene, Grundy, Hamblen, Hancock, Hardeman, Hawkins, Haywood, Henderson, Henry, Hickman, Houston, Humphreys, Jackson, Jefferson, Johnson, Lake, Lauderdale, Lawrence, Lewis, Lincoln, Loudon, Macon, Madison, Marion, Marshall, Maury, McMinn, McNairy, Meigs, Monroe, Montgomery, Moore, Morgan, Obion, Overton, Perry, Pickett, Polk, Putnam, Rhea, Roane, Robertson, Rutherford, Scott, Sequatchie, Sevier, Smith, Stewart, Sullivan, Sumner, Tipton, Trousdale, Unicoi, Union, Van Buren, Warren, Washington, Wayne, Weakley, White, Williamson and Wilson.

Meanwhile, these counties do not allow retail package stores: Bradley, Chester, Claiborne, Crockett, Decatur, Dekalb, Fentress, Grainger, Hancock, Houston, Jefferson, Johnson, Macon, McNairy, Meigs, Morgan, Obion, Overton, Pickett, Polk, Rhea, Stewart, Union, Warren, Wayne, Weakley and White.

Strangely enough, some dry counties listed above have cities that allow liquor sales. For example, Union City in Obion County allows liquor sales by the drink, despite being in a dry county.
