So how many locals are actually tapping those barrels isn't so important..?

Minimally so. Because of the Commonwealth's local-option laws, there are swaths where alcohol sales of any kind are illegal, so bars just can't exist there.

County-by-county prohibition's bad. I grew up in a dry county, and there was an unwritten rule that late on Friday and Saturday nights, you did not travel on one of the roads in the northwest part of the county without very good reason, because of the large number of people driving back from the nearest wet county, in various stages of intoxication.

Hmm, that's quite interesting.
Thanks for sharing, mate. Smiley I hadn't even guessed as such a granulated approach.

According to Wikipedia its even worse, some dry counties have wet precincts and vice versa.

Apparently pharmacies can sell wine and liquor, but not beer and grocery stores can sell beer but not wine and liquor. Plus there's apparently seventy different kinds of liquor license.

And I thought PA's liquor laws were screwy.

It's weird, yeah. Beer in the coolers in the grocery departments, and a store-within-a-store that sells things I drink. The laws require a separate entrance.

Well, it's not mutually exclusive.

They are screwy, and state operated liquor stores suck, but it could be vastly worse.
