A beer distributor says Alabama's alcohol board has reversed an earlier decision to ban a beer over its name, and will now allow it to be sold in the state.

The Birmingham Beverage Co. said in a statement that Alabama's Alcoholic Beverage Control Board will allow the sale of Dirty Bastard Beer.

State officials could not immediately be reached for comment on the decision.
