Why is PA so backwards?

Postby Pavel Bure on Sun Dec 09, 2012 11:40 am

There's a type of booze I wanted to order and get shipped to me. I go on the website, set everything up, go to pick the state... no PA listed. Hmmmm think maybe the page didn't load right. Refresh, go through it again, still no PA. A quick jaunt to the google machine and I find out you can't have booze shipped into PA. You can't get this booze in PA. This is America damn it. I want to be able to get whatever booze I want! What gives?

Because if you did that then the PLCB couldn't get their cut.

I guess PA's a very small amount better than that, on Sunday anyway. Can't buy a bottle of booze in PA on Sunday. Can buy a bottle of wine, if you have a winery nearby. Can't buy a case, guess you can buy a 6 pack, if you are fortunate enough to live in a town with a place that can sell by the 6 pack and sells decent beer.

6 days a week there's no place worse as far as draconian alcohol laws.

That's only certain places, due to local blue laws.

I've bought beer and wine, at the grocery store, on a Sunday morning in SC.

PA is terrible with this crap. Hate the PLCB and all the antiquated laws with a passion.

I haven't figured out the exact boundaries, but there are definitely lax open container laws here.
It's perfectly civilized, IMO.

The most interesting open container law I've run into was in Butte, Montana. It's pretty odd walking down the street in a town that looks like Wilkes Barre or something as every other person is openly drinking a beer.

So, our wedding is in June 2013, a friend just gave us 10 bottles of jacquins vodka, gin, whiskey and scotch. Will it still taste good (I know it's cheap, but I mean notskunked)

It'll just be aged a bit. Spirits don't go bad. That stuff won't get any better though but it's good open bar fare.
