Default Beer above the mason-dixon line...

I'm driving my girlfriend back to NY from NC this weekend and I figure I may as well try to pick up some regional beers I may not be able to find here in the south while I'm at it.

Anyway, I'll be heading up interstate 81, going through Maryland, PA and NY. Anyone got any suggestions for me? Specifically I'm looking for a nice craft beer store where I could stop in and pick up a few singles/bombers I may not be able to find at home. 120 Minute IPA is already on the list for novelty's sake, I just need to know of a place that would carry it.

Harrisburg is probably my best bet but if anyone knows anywhere else along the way, I'd be happy to give it a shot!

Is Del above the Mason-Dixon line? I don't remember US history that well.

Hook yourself up with some of Great Lakes finest. I highly recommend their Burning River.

We actually just started getting Great Lakes' stuff here in NC a few months back. I'm loving the Edmund Fitzgereld Porter as well as the Burning River IPA.

Oh and yeah, Delaware is technically above (to the east of) the mason-dixon.

In Pennsylvania, you won't be able to buy anything smaller than a case (unless that's changed since my days in State College) and the cases are sold through a distributor.

Six packs can only be bought in places where you can also drink the beer (so, distributors and convenience stores are out).

Wow.. I cannot believe that noone has mentioned Yuengling yet. If you're going through PA, definitely pick some up. It's America's oldest brewery! I can't really say that it's my FAVORITE beer, but I do look forward to drinking it when I make my way out to PA or NY. Unfortunately, it's not sold here in Ohio.

On your way down I-95, stop off at DuClaw in the Arundel Mills shopping center just south of Baltimore-Washington International Airport.

Wow, I had no idea the beer laws were so weird in PA. Maybe I'll try NY or Maryland.

Also, Yuengling is pretty old hat for me. It's been available in NC for quite a while and I personally don't find their stuff to be very good. I'd drink it over BMC, but that's about it.

If I wasn't an idiot, I would have read the OP more thoroughly... DuClaw is actually a brewpub. Don't know if they sell singles...

I live in PA... it's the LAST place you wanna buy beer unless you're visiting a brewery. Beer is 45% more expensive, you have to buy a case at a time (unless you go to a six pack shop), and they don't sell it in convenience or grocery stores. Go for Maryland instead bro.
