      We have a couple of Wegmans in the Easton / Bethlehem area that sell beer.  As a matter of fact they are having another beer and food tasting session there next Saturday.

       

      PA definitely has some whacky rules.  The supermarkets follow the bar rules.  You can only carryout a 12 pack at a time.  Then there's the beer outlets where you must buy a case at a time.  Most breweries are smart and have packaged up variety cases, at least.

       

      And yeah, Victory makes some good stuff.  I'd love to go down there and visit the brewery some day.

              That's funny.  I'm totally willing to drive out of my way to the new Wegmans just so I can see this beer section I keep hearing about!!!

                Wegman's beer section is great! I've been out there a few times to pick up a couple of six packs, and have also eaten at their pub. Good food, good beer, shopping with a nice little buzz. How can it get any better? 

                 

                It's nice to be able to sample beer without committing to a case at a time.

                 

                Hopefully this is the beginning of the end of the stupid laws.
