    Default Wine vending machines in Pennsylvania

    At first I thought "why bother?", until I read that supermarkets
    normally don't sell wine there, so it is some sort of improvement. It
    has still way to go, I think, before the ideal situation is reached,
    where wine is available 24 hours a day.

    No, in Pennsylvania wine is sold only through state-owned stores or by
    PA-based winemakers themselves. IIRC, these "vending machines" aren't
    exactly the stick-your-money-in-and-get-the-bottle type. You have to
    show your driver license or state ID to the machine and wait for
    approval from a state bureaucrat who is remotely monitoring the
    machine. I'll be glad if this state ever stops treating its citizens
    like subjects, but I'm not holding my breath.

    Perhaps when casinos outnumber the state liquor stores we'll see a little
    loosening of the restrictions.
