Instead of PA Wine and Spirits home delivery, try these options.
Last Updated: 4/27/20
Confused about how to order alcohol in light of recent shutdowns? Us too.
The state of PA has been in flux since the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board closed all liquor stores in the state on March 17.
In lieu of in-person sales, state residents now have the option to purchase a restricted quantity of wine and spirits from a reduced catalogue on the Fine Wine and Good Spirits website, and have the option of getting PA wine and spirits home delivery.
But the story doesn’t end there. As many residents have noted, the website is tricky and unreliable. There is a narrow window to make purchases before the site gets overloaded and displays a message that says, “Due to overwhelming demand, the online store is not available at this time. Please try again tomorrow or in the coming days.”
So, what are PA residents doing? Short of driving for the border, they’re shopping local! There is no better time to support local businesses! Distillers, beer distributors, and wine shops are able to continue operations, albeit without dine-in services.
Many have curbside pickup hours, delivery, and/or ship throughout Pennsylvania. Below are details on what a few Pittsburgh favorites are offering for PA wine and spirits home delivery and pickup options.
