Excerpt from a February 1, 2010, Floating Sheep blogpost, "The Beer Belly of America".
At FloatingSheep, we're willing to search for and analyze almost anything that falls within the realm of human experience. Sometimes this is mundane (pizza) and sometimes it is contentious (abortion) but most of the time it falls somewhere in between. Such as, where can I get a drink?
In Pennsylvania, for example, where Retiring Guy grew up, you still can't buy alcohol -- beer or otherwise -- in a grocery store.
Beer: distributor, bar.
Wine & liquor: state store.
