State senate OKs bill to let distributors sell six-packs

HARRISBURG — Pennsylvania’s senate has voted to pass legislation that would, among other things, allow beer distributors to sell beer for off-site consumption in any amount, including six-packs and growlers.

The bill, which the state senate passed on Monday, would permit manufacturers to ship up to 192 ounces of beer to consumers each month.

Consumers would also be able to buy mixed drinks at the state’s sporting venues that currently sell beer.

The full state House of Representatives must still approve the bill. It would then go to Gov. Tom Wolf.

A spokesman for Wolf was non-committal Monday evening on whether the governor would sign the bill.

The state enacted sweeping changes to its liquor laws over the summer, including allowing grocery stores to sell wine.
