Asa Hartwig talks about Cullman history
A snippet of Asa Hartwig's recent talk to the Cullman County Historical Society on Cullman's history. Hartwig explains how the City of Cullman became so popular with beer-drinkers, as only it and Balwin County on the Gulf of Mexico, could sell draft beer. All other bars throughout the state had to sell homebrew, which didn't taste as good, making Cullman a popular weekend travel spot.
That popularity eventually led to Cullman becoming a dry county.
