Agreed, itís definitely about the area. I know Chicago (Illinois), L.A. (California), and St. Louis (Missouri) are all cities with horrible availability. Add that to your market research report.


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.


me thinks he trolls. Chicago as great availability and so does St. Louis. I donít know much about L.A. though, but theyíre close to San Diego.

Indiana has crazy alcohol Laws, no take home sales on Sunday unless from a Brewery/Brewpub or Vineyard. You can also drink on premise, nothing else though. It sucks when you run short on Beer for Football too.

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


Itís true that you can good a lot of good beer in Pennsylvania; it just can be truly aggravating if you donít know where to go to get it. I know a lot of people that were astounded that you couldnít just stop at a convenience store or even most grocery stores to get a 6-pack. The locals know how to deal with it but itís pretty confusing for people passing through to stop at a beer distributor and not be able to buy anything smaller than a full case.

The Dutch Province of Friesland and Drenthe aint got much craft beers, like your US counterparts. Only 2 breweries each.

Agreed. He couldnít be more wrong about Chicago or St. Louis. MO was the biggest net gainer in terms of breweries adding it to their footprint in 2011, not to mention the fact that STL and the state as a whole are exploding with new breweries. And as mentioned above, Chicago is to an even greater degree.
