The kind of beer loyalty that every brewer yearns for

Alabama Man Stabs Friend over Wrong Beer

MOULTON -- Authorities say a dispute over cheap beer left one man in the hospital with stab wounds and another man charged with assault.

Lawrence County sheriff's officials said Friday that 64-year-old Grady "Skip" Wilburn Dollar of Trinity is accused of stabbing 37-year-old Mickey Joe Hill during a dispute early Thursday.

Sheriff's Sgt. Mark Richard said the two men had been drinking together when Dollar gave Hill $10 and told him to go to the store for more.

Richard said Hill brought back only four cans of Natural Light, a low-cost brand, and Dollar got mad because he didn't get more for the money.

The victim then asked for one of the four beers, leading to the stabbing.

Hill remains hospitalized but is expected to recover. Dollar is free on $5,000 bond.
