"You can't buy beer with the hamburger meat" Pittsburgh Local Custom Tip by Pounder73

Pittsburgh Local Customs: 31 reviews and 43 photos

Buying beer and alcohol can be a little tricky in PA. Outside of bars and restaurants, you have limited options where you purchase your drink of choice. For the strong stuff that puts hair on your palms, or was it somewhere else?, you need to buy it at State Stores. This is also where you procure your wine.

For your beer, you have to buy it at distributors, and only in cases. Luckily, it is usually set up like a drive through; dive up, pop the trunk, pay and leave. You can buy six packs from bars, but at very inflated prices.

You can?t buy any alcohol in grocery stores or 7/11?s (and maybe not on Sundays either)
