Yeah the coast is seeing more that other parts of the state for sure. With more than half the state being dry, it may take a while before it all gets distributed

Chicago? Really? When was the last time you have been up there. Binnyís Lincoln Park probably has one of the top ten selections in the country and I travel for a living. LA is horrible though.

Even before they relaxed their laws you could still find Abita and Lazy Magnolia.

Yes this is true, Leslie at LM has always been very cool to talk to and they have always been supportive of the craft beer scene in south MS.

But even with LM and Abita available in the state, there are many areas that do not even sell either of them just for the simple fact they never heard of them, or the price is at more of a premium than BMC and it would not sell to the general population

Well in PA, you have to go to very specific stores for beer...different stores depending upon quantity that you want to purchase. But there are plenty of these stores and our selection is fantastic.

Jean Van Roy from Cantillion says we have the best selection in the world. I have been to one or two other beer cities that were maybe as good as Philly. But Definately none better.

It is pretty clear that heís being sarcastic, as all three cities are among the best in the country for beer.

Yeah, selection is fantastic... No way PA should even be mentioned in this thread.
