    Pit Stop Suggestions

    In a few weeks I'll find myself spending the day in Pittsburgh. On most of my driving trips, I usually try to stop by a few liquor stores to see if there is anything that generates some interest. I don't foresee making any stops in Ohio, but I wanted to see if anyone had suggestions for a few places to stop while in the Pittsburgh and/or surrounding area. I'll be coming in from the north via 76, 79 and 279.


    Thanks - Ryan

    PA is a control state, so there is little variety between state stores.

    Ugh. Never any fun going into a liquor store and already having little to no chance of being surprised by anything.

    There also seem to be very few stores. If you want to visit one, I suggest mapping it out ahead of time. I stayed in Pittsburg for a few days. I could not find a single store close to the hotel. I later found out many bars do a brisk carry out business selling cold beer.

    There is a craft distillery in what is known as the "strip district"(no it's not what you think, it's a market district) called Wigle whiskey. Check out the website for a tour and tasting. I've never been but it's a suggestion.

    I recommend you visit a liquor store here, so you can see the backward way we are forced to live. This is the state's website www.finewineandgoodspirits.com

    You can see what the state carries and what stores carry it, so if you are looking for something in particular you know exactly where to go get it. There is some variety between stores, but not much.
