State law allows counties and their political divisions to allow or prohibit the sale of alcohol. Some areas allow the sale of beer, wine and liquor. Other areas limit sales to beer and wine, and some prevent the sale of alcohol all together.

The 2019 update of the Wet/Dry Status of Arkansas Counties map is your key to understanding the laws of each county. See which counties are wet, damp and dry, and which areas of each county limit the sale of alcohol. You can also find out how many permits each county is entitled to if alcohol is, or were to become, legal. Finally, the updated map includes the 12 towns in Arkansas that allow Sunday alcohol sales.
