When it comes to drinking, I believe everyone in Philadelphia and the Philadelphia suburbs takes pride in how much they can drink.
Western Pennsylvania thinks Philadelphia can’t hang while drinking. In fact, the district where Pittsburgh is located has Allegheny, the number 1 district with the highest alcohol dollar sales in the state.
That shows everyone in Allegheny County is ready to go wild with a ton of alcohol.
But in reality, Philadelphia can easily say that Pittsburgh and everyone else in Allegheny County don’t really enjoy this drinking lifestyle, as Philadelphia suburbs like Montgomery County, Bucks County, Delaware County, and Chester County are all in the top 10 counties that are most drink alcohol.
Take the Allegheny! The party’s life is in eastern Pennsylvania.
According to the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board, the three counties with the highest dollar sales for alcohol in the entire state are Allegheny, Philadelphia, and Montgomery.
One thing we noticed on the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board’s rankings was that alcohol sales actually fell from 2019 to 2020.
In Philadelphia it fell 17.2 percent. Maybe the corona pandemic has something to do with it. Regardless, the total was $ 210,375,885 in alcohol sales for Philadelphia.
With all that said, Pittsburgh really can’t say they are a more fun city than Philadelphia, given that the districts with the highest sales of alcohol surround the city of brotherly love.
This was all based on purchases made in the fiscal year October 1, 2019 through September 30, 2020.
