    No Sunday liquor stores here, but you can still pick up a pack of beer at the grocery store. I haven't run into any grocery stores that also sell liquor. Not sure if that is by law or what.

    I knew someone who drove up to Kentucky one night because of this law. Hours later he discovered that they had that law as well.

    want to move to the states just for sailor jerry

    I can't imagine not having Sailor Jerry. But I also can't imagine not being able to buy liquor at every gas station, convenient store, and grocery store at any hour of the night.

    Wooo California.

    Oh don't exaggerate! We are not allowed to buy liquor in Cali between the hours of 2 a.m.–6 a.m. This has been a pain for me many times haha.

    the 7-11 by my house sells liquor 24/7

    State law.

    Wikipedia has a list: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_alcohol_laws_of_the_United_States_by_state

    Though I could've sworn Massachusetts didn't allow grocery store beer sales, but maybe that's only Boston? Of course, that was also 4 years ago.

    Being from the south I really appreciate the lack of blue laws more.

    Georgia still has a state-wide ban on Sunday alcohol sales (outside of bars and restaurants).

    One of the most alcohol-permissive states, perhaps only behind Nevada and Louisiana:

    No open container law.[12]

    No state public intoxication law.

    No prohibition on absinthe.

    Liquor control law[13] covers all beverages containing more than 0.5% alcohol, without further particularities based on percentage.[14]

    Cities and counties are prohibited from banning off-premises alcohol sales.[15]

    No dry jurisdictions.

    State preemption of local alcohol laws which do not follow state law.

    Certain bars in Kansas City and St. Louis grandfathered into the ability to double as liquor stores.

    Special licenses available for bars and nightclubs which allow selling alcohol until 3:00am in Kansas City,[16] Jackson County,[17] North Kansas City,[17] St. Louis,[18] and St. Louis County[19].

    Grocery stores, drug stores, and even gas stations may sell liquor without limitation other than hours.[20]

    Patrons allowed to take open containers out of bars in Kansas City's Power & Light District.[21]

    Parents and guardians may furnish alcohol to their children.[22]

    Missourians over 21 may manufacture up to 100 gallons of any liquor per year for personal use, without any further state limitation, state taxation, or state license.[23] (Obtaining a permit from the Federal Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau and meeting other requirements under federal law probably still is required for private citizens to manufacture distilled alcohol - but not wine or beer - for personal use.[24][25][26][27][28])

    pennsylvania is fucking awful and ruined my july 4th a few years back with this shit
    Pennsylvania is an alcoholic beverage control state. Wines and spirits are to be sold only in the state owned Wine And Spirits shops, where all prices must remain the same throughout the state. People under the age of 21 are prohibited from entering Wine and Spirits shops, unless accompanied by a guardian. The usual opening hours for these stores are from 9am to 10pm Monday through Saturday. These stores used to always be closed on Sundays, but now open for limited hours on that day. Wineries, which sell wine from grapes grown in the area, are also very common throughout the commonwealth, and are often located in shopping malls.

    To purchase beer a person must go to a restaurant, bar, or distributor. Beer distributors sell mainly cases and kegs of beer while six and twelve packs, along with individual beers such as 40 ounce or 24 ounce beers, are sold at bars and restaurants. A person is only allowed to purchase 194 ounces of beer at a time in this manner. If you take the 194 ounces to your vehicle and re-enter the business, you can buy 194 more ounces, and continue doing so so long as you only take out 194 ounces of beer from the store at a time. For larger quantities one must go to a beverage distributor which sells beer only by the case or keg. Beverage distributors (which also sell soft drinks) may sell beer and malt liquor, but not wine or hard liquor.

    Lucky Californians. Not having to buy liquor before 9pm and only at specialized stores.

    Don't forget, closed on Sunday.

    How in the hell do you do football season for when you run out of beer between games?

    We buy in BULK. I had a picture on my phone once of the back of my Ford Escape, rear seats folded down flat. We had something like 2 kegs, 16 cases of beer, and about 10 bottles of liquor. Cost a pretty penny that did. Fun night though.

    Re: Football

    you can buy beer after 12pm on sunday

    and you cannot buy it after 12am until saturday night, whereupon said hour is moved to 1am

    The dumbest part is you can't go to one store in PA to buy beer and liquor. They can't even be next door to each other. The only positive is that because prices are set throughout the state, they can buy quantities in large bulk and have decent sales. It's random, but every now and then you'll see bourbons at 1/3 off or top shelf vodkas for dirt prices. I've teared up on occasions.



    Besides that though, the fucking Quakers and their crazy state laws suck ass.

    There's something I respect about places where alcohol flows so freely.


    Louisiana is like that one member of the family that is just always wasted and exists just to party.

    Utah alcohol laws are the worst
    ABV > 4.0+% sold in state-controlled stores only. State-controlled stores close on Sundays and cease operations no later than 10 p.m. the rest of the week. Restaurants must buy from the state-controlled store (no delivery) at retail prices. No alcohol may be served on Election Day until 8 p.m. No alcohol is served in restaurants without purchase of food. Only 4.0% or below beer available on tap. Ban on the sales of kegs.

    Beer here is awful

    Shock G that is just upsetting. It's possible to get booze any time here, from shops with the right license, and there are 5 places to buy alcohol literally within a one minute walk from my front door, including two proper off licenses, two regular shops, and a chinese takeaway which sells some booze

    Oh rub it in will ya?

    On the bright side we do get a few good microbrews. But you have to buy them in a state liquor store. Which is hard when you're not 21

    You are giving them a service, so I don't see why not.

    I feel bad about the guy that gets me my stuff. I tell him to get me a decent amount and keep the change and I'll hand him a 20 and he'll either go over that price or want to give me the change back. I'm like "no dude, you're helping me out so at least take some small amount of money.
