Beer Monsters tips

  • Cost

    If you enjoy more than the the odd glass of beer, it can be quite expensive in the USA.
    As we have always had young kids with us when we've travelled, we've got into the habit of having a few beers in the hotel/motel room after the kids are asleep. This is a cheap way to indulge ! In most places we've visited in the USA beer is sold in petrol stations (for exceptions see below). It is at least half and very often less then half of the cost you'd pay in a bar or restaurant. Supermarkets are even better value.

  • Canada

    They dont sell beer in petrol stations in Canada !

    They dont sell beer in super markets in Canada !!!

    They only sell beer in Government run/sponsored liquor stores. If you didn't know this, you could spend a frustrating hour or so out beer hunting. Keep you eye open for Liquor stores or Beer shops as you approach your destination, they are few and far between.

  • Colorado

    Site visitor post 17.11.01 No restrictions except Sunday - only 3.2% (alcohol content) beer sales - and no other alcohol sales.

  • Mississippi

    Site visitor post

    If you're planning to visit Mississippi on a Sunday be prepared not to be able to get a drink. We visited Tupelo and struggling to find a bar after a long walk went into an Outback restaurant for a meal, (and a drink). We were disappointed. The staff told us no drink was available,( not even wine),anywhere in the county and others nearby. keep some in the car.

  • New Mexico

    Site visitor post 17.11.01 No restrictions except Sunday - no alcohol sold before 12:00 noon.

  • Texas

    Site visitor post About a third of the counties in Texas are dry! No alcohol for sale in restaurants or shops. After a long day's drive that's hard!!

  • Utah

    Site visitor post 17.11.01 Beer Monsters beware, another Canada. - state owned/operated liquor stores only - few and far between.

  • Wyoming

    They dont sell beer in petrol stations in Wyoming !

    This came as a rude shock. However, liquor stores and supermarkets that sell beer are much easier to find than they are in Canada.
