Thread: Hello from PA

    Hello from PA

    Hello all. I'm from Pittsburgh, PA (well about 30 minutes NW of Pittsburgh). I've been checking out the site for awhile and figured I'd join. I've been enjoying bourbon and some rye for about a year now. It is tough finding certain bourbon in PA, since the laws are terrible. Some of my favorites are:

    Blanton's
    Booker's
    EC12
    EWSB
    FRSB
    FRSmB
    WTRB
    WT101
    Bulleit
    ETL

    Would love to find some OGD 114, but it is impossible to find in PA.

    Nice to be a part of the site.

    Hey chrelec, welcome aboard. Yes, limited availability is a bit of a disappointment but it's also an excuse for a road trip.
    We're Bourbon Geeks, it's who we are, it's what we do.

    Welcome to 'the board', chrelec3!
    Glad to have you join in. You have a pretty stellar line up already.
    Don't forget about the bottom shelf, tho. Some fine 'every day' pours down there.
    EW black label, is very reliable, very reasonable and pretty tasty.
    Four Rose yellow label never disappoints.
    If you can't get OGD114, try OGD BIB.... or any of the BIB's for that matter.
    Enjoy your journey. It can really be a fun ride!

    Welcome 3. With the limited offerings in PA you do have some fine bottles there.

    Welcome. Several other PA persons contribute regularly here. Those of us elsewhere can empathize with your (and their) ABC store selections. There are some gems in those stores, though. Have fun finding them.

    Welcome to the board. Hope you can find some OGD114. It's pretty commonly found in Texas, if you're headed that way.

    Thanks for the welcome. I do enjoy some of the "bottom shelf" stuff as well. EW black label is great and easy to find. I like OGD as well, but haven't tried the OGD BIB yet. That will be a future purchase.

    Welcome to the site! I live about 40 min. Directly west of Pittsburgh, so I might be close to you. I believe OGD 114 is available in PA through the SLO system. It's kind of expensive at about $30 but should be available. The last time I checked the min. order was 3.
