I flew into Eastern Pennsylvania yesterday to pick up a car I bought on line. The lady that owned the car was like the Vice President of Sales, or something like that, at Yuengling Beer. She lived by the town of Sunnybrook. She told me how Yuengling is the oldest brewery in the United States, so I decided to stop and buy some before I left the state. Not yet available in Michigan, but she tells me that could change in the near future.
I just wanted to say that I believe the number of states I haven't been to in the United States you could probably count on one hand, and Pennsylvania, by a landslide, wins the award for the hardest state in the United States to buy beer in. I pulled into a CVS and asked the lady behind the counter where's the beer, and she laughed at me. I couldn't find any of these type of stores we call in Michigan "party" or "convienant" stores that sell beer, so I finally find a Weiss Grocery Store that sold beer, and I walked up, and grabbed a couple twelve packs of Yuengling off of the counter, and started walking away towards the front cashiers to pay for them, and some lady started yelling at me that I had to pay for the beer in the beer department, and exit the store through the door in the beer department, and then she tells me she can't sell me two twelve packs at a time because that's over the limit of beer you can buy at once, so I had to put one twelve back, and take the other twelve pack out to my car, and come back in, and buy the second twelve pack. When it comes to buying beer in Pennsylvania why does the state government treat everybody like they're 12 years old? It shouldn't be that hard to buy beer once you turn 21. Driving the long ways through Pennsylvania from east to west I decide to pull off of I-80 to see what other types of beer I could find to bring home they don't sell in Michigan, and just randomly pulling off of I-80 at different exits I couldn't find any where that sold beer. In other states the truck stops and all the stores by the freeway exits sell beer, but not in Pennsylvania.
