America moving in right direction?

Smokes out of 'indoors'
More beer in 'stores'

It would help 'lots'
If only stores had 'slots'

While it's not 'great'
There are lottery tickets from the 'state'

Now why in Gods name would I go to a grocery store to get six packs of beer for my Memorial Day picnic, you would have to have a few screws loose to spend more money for six packs than getting it at a beer distributor.

"a bitter discussion about the exhaustive debate of the antiquated alcohol policy of Pennsylvania and the privatizing of the state's liquor sales"

It would be bitter because it's antiquated protection of yet another public trough wallowed in by the absolute worst rank of public 'servants'-- the ones no one needs, or wants.

And it would be bitter because the state stores should have auctioned off years before Rendell & buddies played kissy face with organized gambling interests or Turnpike buyers from Mexico.

The discussion was about 'beer'. The current distributor owners are private guys. Not 'Public Servants'. The guys I go to lost their jobs. The three of them pooled their life savings and invested in a distributorship. And they aren't getting rich. For you guys who claim these places are getting wealthy. Make them a bid. I'm sure they'd be happy take your offer.

"I needed a fix real bad, I was shaking and sweating and my vision was 50% at best. I needed some smokes too as taking some nicotine would at least calm my hands enough to drive. Where was I going to find a dealer at this moment, right then when I needed one most? I'm in Allentown and there should be plenty of places...ah Wegman's will fix me up with the alcohol I need to stay alive! Damn, I'll have to wait until my shakes go away until I can drive somewhere else to get my nicotine fix because Mr. Wegman thinks smoking is bad for my health - thank goodness he supports alcoholism."

I know who you are talking about ,they are nice hard working people and being in the beer business myself I know whay you are talking about. Most of the people who bad mouth distributors are the people who think you should always give them a discount without realizing you dont make alot of money selling beer to start with.Hey to all you cheapos who are always short for you cases of beer, see if Wegmans will give it to you.

You can buy beer and wine at grocery stores in Florida (for instance). NOT having to go to a separate store for same saves time and fuel, not to mention the convenience. Florida, to my knoiwledge, does not have a larger percentage of alcoholics than other states. Once you get used to that it is hard to justiofy or abide by the antiquated system in this state.

in states that have normal alcohol laws, a six pack is less than $5 for domestic beer. Maybe $6 for Euro and micros.

Because not all of us need, or want, a full case of beer.

Let everybody sell alcohol. The free market works. A beer distributor should still be able to compete in the free market through volume and variety. Grocery stores sell items that are far worse than alcohol (pesticide laced produce, chemical laden processed foods, etc.). There are no logical reasons to keep them out of the alcohol business.

In New York, you can buy brands like Bud and Coors any day, every week at any grocery store in town for $11.99 per 18pack or $17.99 per 30pack. Same beer, probably the same profit to the major companies. So who is making the extra money?

Tanzcos. The only way it pays to get six packs is if you want to try something new or you only have a beer once in a blue moon. At $7 a six pack you are paying $28 a case instead of $20. Or if you get something like Miller Lite 30 packs it would cost you $35 for what should cost you $20.

I'll be waiting for wine to be sold at Wegman's. It will be nice to be able to pick up a bottle with dinner. I'll make the extra trip for the beer though.

I understand what you mean, I too would like to make my own case up but not at supermarket prices. If they allow distributors to sell six packs you will save money.

In most states, supermarket six pack prices are very competitive with beer distributor prices.

Very true! This is the prevailing philosophy.
