Gilbertsville is dry, meaning that alcohol sales are prohibited. Calvert City, just to the west on US 62, is "moist", allowing alcohol sales by the drink in larger restaurants (seating at least 100) but not package sales. The nearest wet area is Lyon County, on the east side of the Cumberland River/Lake Barkley and accessible from both US 62 and I-24. The main communities in that county are Kuttawa, directly on Lake Barkley, and Eddyville, a larger town a few miles east of the lake. For those taking a side trip to Paducah, that city is also wet.

By phone

Most telephone numbers in Gilbertsville consist of +1 270 plus a seven-digit number, but the entire Purchase area is now served by an overlay complex of two area codes, with +1 364 as the second. A local or in-state telephone call now requires all 10 digits of the local number be dialed (omitting just the leading +1 from a local landline call).

Signage on many established businesses may still display the original seven-digit numbers; dial 270 before these if no area code is indicated.
