You Can Finally Buy Liquor At West Hamilton Fine Wine & Good Spirits On Sundays

Your Sunday Fun-day just got way more convenient.

Pennsylvania’s liquor reform bill, an important step in bringing the Keystone state out of the Prohibition Era, went into effect August 8. This means 94 more liquor stores throughout Pennsylvania are now open on Sundays — including State College’s trusty old Fine Wine & Good Spirits on 230 W. Hamilton Ave.

Although the Hills Plaza and North Atherton stores have already been open for business on the day of the Lord, W. Hamilton is by far the closest location to campus. If you really wanted to, you could walk from campus to the liquor store and purchase alcohol this Sunday and every Sunday in the foreseeable future.

The hours of operation are understandably fewer than every other day of the week, but from 11 a.m.-7 p.m. the world is your oyster. Maybe Saturdays are for the boys, but Sundays are now for the Penn Staters. Oh, and as part of the now-in-effect bipartisan bill, liquor stores can now open on holidays.

Other features of the bill include: grocery stores can now sell wine, you can order wine online, and more gas stations can sell six packs. We’ll keep you posted when these things happen in our neck of the woods.
