Pennsyvania tries Vino Vending Machines

Decisions, decisions. This old broad can't decide between a Chateau Margaux 1787 or a bottle of 2 Buck Chuck.
Pa. tries vino vending machines

A new twist on wine sales.  Pennsylvania is testing wine vending machines that require an ID and a breathalyzer test, making the state the first in the nation to try the vino kiosks.

The wine vending machines, which can hold more than 700 bottles, were introduced at grocery stores in Harrisburg and Mechanicsburg in late June.  Pennsylvania liquor laws allow individuals to buy wine and liquor for home use only at state-owned stores.

You can find the rest of the story HERE (at  But the Keystone State ain't got nothing on our auto-dispensing brothers in the Far East.  Check out  these beer vending machines from the streets of Japan.  I had the pleasure of getting some brew out of one in Nagano back in 1998.  Very convenient!

Nice selection of Kirin, Ashahi, and Sapporo. And I think there's an Old English 800, just for the flavor. 

In my opinion, no Liquor House is "mini" when they're so damned convenient!
