Places You Can Still Buy Liquor in Berks County

Virtually everyone has been affected by the current COVID-19 pandemic and many of you know that for safety reasons all liquor stores in Berks County and the state of Pennsylvania are all closed. The good news is that for those of you who are a little crafty, there are still quite a few places where you can score some liquor and a couple of bottles of wine for the remainder of your quarantine.
