Bitter and I went to the Wegman’s Supermarket in Warrington, which is now selling beer for takeout. Selection is decent by Pennsylvania standards. I managed to pick up some Victory Golden Money, and Newcastle Brown Ale. You won’t find any real boutique brews, but certainly better than your average takeout fare.
Wegman’s has a typical supermarket food court, and it would seem they got a license to sell alcohol for on premise consumption, which allows them to sell take out beer. No doubt this will infuriate the MBDAPA. Wegmans gets around the Sheetz case by allowing you to actually drink your beer in their cafeteria. This Friday Bitter taked to our State Representative, who didn’t see much of a constituency for getting rid of our ridiculous beer laws.
Here’s hoping that Wegmans might make a chink in the armor of the MBDAPA, and we’ll be able to look forward to more beer in supermarkets in Pennsylvania.
