I used to be a prison guard and have confiscated lots of it. Never have I been tempted to try any of it.

In CA, you can walk into Safeway at 2AM on a Sunday and buy as much liquor/wine/beer as you want, no problems. Every grocery store sells beer, wine and liquor, as do most gas stations. And bargain stores like BevMo have cheaper prices than any other place I've seen, plus terrific selection. In VA, in contrast, you have to buy alcohol at the ABC, and a bottle of Glenlivet 12 yr. is something like $45, where you can get it at the drugstore in CA for $28 on sale!

I miss CA.
AZ is the same way...

NY has pretty lax beer laws too. You can pretty much buy beer anywhere.

I've always found the stupidity of dry counties interesting. In Texas' dry counties every major road into the county has a liquor store with a drive-thru right at the county line.You don't have drunks walking the street but you have lots of drunks driving--and sobriety checkpoints are illegal in Texas.

Ohio has some pretty stupid liquor laws too. They also have state run liquor agencies. If it isn't a state agency, the highest alcohol content a store can sell is 21% alcohol so they have these crappy knockoff brands of every liquor you can think of that are all 42 proof. Also, no beer with an ABV of over 12% can be sold anywhere in the state.

Next door in Indiana, liquor stores can't sell milk or cold soft drinks but can sell soft drinks at room temp.

It's because you can't hear the capitalization... "I only drink Lager"

Is that Copper Creek? I remember seeing that, just cannot remember where...

This makes me very sad. Moving to Cincinnati in January. How the heck am I supposed to get KBS?

In NC it's a public/private partnership. The state ABC board controls the liquor stores (ABC) stores, but they are franchised and run by private individuals.

I actually meant to capitalize it. Being from PA yourself, I'm sure you know exactly what I'm talking about!
