Small Breweries Benefit From New Pa. Law

Small breweries in Pennsylvania can now sell beer by the bottle under a new law

Beer connosieurs can choose their local brews by the bottle to take home thanks to a new Pennsylvania law.

Breweries used to be required to sell beer by the case (64 ounces). Now, thanks to Act 113,  "a licensed brewery can sell any quantity of its beer in any package or any volume for off-premises consumption."

The change will make it easier for customers to sample unfamiliar microbrews from local businesses such as in Easton, according to a Lehigh Valley Live report. 

State Senators Bob Freeman and Lisa Boscola supported the change in Pennsylvania liquor laws.

This is fantastic news! Finally!! You can visit the Weyerbacher Brewery Visitors Center and sample the brews then buy your favorites in the quantities you want. Mix and match a six pack and take it as a host/hostess gift for your next picnic. The Visitors Center is open Friday afternoon/evenings (4:30 pm – 7:00 pm) and Saturday afternoons (12:00 pm – 3:00 pm). Take the tour (it’s fun and educational) then sample their offerings. You won’t be disappointed!
