    Default Scan driverís license to buy beer

    Had some friends stop by on their way to Philly for the weekend. The hubby likes some highend imported stuff that I do not always have around. One of our local shopping centers (Drexiline in Drexilhill) has a new selection which includes building your own six packs. Sounds great Ė right? Pickup the snacks and beverage one stop. After a carful selection of 2 six packs I am asked for my driverís license while checking out. Funny at first but they wanted to scan it. I asked why - they said it was a new rule instituted by the state liquor control. I know the store manage as my son worked there in HS. I will stop by Sunday for some game time snacks and ask them what they do with the scanned license info.


    Call me paranoid but I do not like the idea of someone knowing my drinking patterns

    Anyone else experience this?

    Down here we have a grocery discount card that you can tie to your email for the upcoming weekly specials. I always know what beer and what cuts of beef are going on sale...

    I've never had to do that. First time I've heard someone having their DL swiped for just a purchase of alcohol.

    I don't like that one bit!

    Wegman's does it. I've been to bars that do it, it's a way to combat fake ID's.

    Agreed but none of those goes directly to a state agency.



    I do not like the idea of my info and patterns shared with anyone yet alone the state. No need to ask a 50 plus yr/old for ID yet alone to scan and store the info only to share with the state. Itís just one more data base for someone to illegally sell or personal info the Gov to have.

    Wonder what would have happened if you told them you left your wallet with your license in it at home ? Would they have not sold you the beer and only the snacks ?

    They aren't doing it in Philly yet. When I was on rotation last year in York one of the bars scanned my info in. I talked to the manager and was told that places who have had a history of problems with fake IDs have been asked to just scan in everyone. They told me the info does not go to the state but they keep it as a database so they can tell the liquor board exactly who was in their bar that night if there is a claim against them for fake IDs.

    Had that happen at a liquor store on 206 last summer. Fake ID check was all it was.

    The manager told me the state required them to do it because it was a Super Market selling beer. He said the state does collect the info. He did not want to give me the name of the company who performs the service. He did say that a lot of people have been asking about it and do not like it.


    Why does someone need to check (Scan) my ID at my age? I still do not like the idea of the state having my info.

    not sure what you mean by the state having your info? what kind of beer or how much you drink? just curious...it can't be your personal info like age address etc....because they are the ones that issued your license...correct?
