I usually don't frequent the Mechanicsburg/Camp Hill/Harrisburg area, mostly because it's about an hour from my house on 2-lane roads. Fortunately I finally got around to stopping by Westy's in Camp Hill while out furniture shopping. I've heard good things about it but it really doesn't do it justice until you get there and see for yourself.

And in a state where the word "variety" is just as much a foreign concept as being able to buy a 6-pack of beer without signing over the deed to your house, it's truly a diamond in the rough.

The staff were very nice and helpful. My son walked out with a 4-pack of Steward's Birch Beer and I with a sampler case of Southern Tier (IPA, pale ale, raspberry wheat, and Tripel), but not before I perused the isles 5 or 6 times. I truly felt like a kid in a candy store! Many national and local brews were on hand: Stone, Bell's, Victory, Sly Fox, Sierra Nevada, Sam Adams, Southern Tier, Ommegang, Rogue, Penn Brewery, Avery...the list literally goes on and on.

Unfortunately they don't have a working website at the present time; directions and a list of what they carry would be helpful. But beggars can't be choosers, I suppose.

I did work in Harrisburg years ago and I think we went there one time. I am still blown away that you guys can't buy beer in a convenience store or a grocery store.

Yeah, I know. Luckily for me a really good bottle store is just over the line in Maryland (where I grew up), and I can actually buy a six pack there!!!

Heheh...I get tired of explaining the beer laws here. Anyway, just found your site. Pretty cool. I'll be hittin' the archives to see what you've been up to.
