Pennsylvania LCB supports craft brewers by allowing breweries to sell to consumers on premises

In a move that supports the craft brew economy in Pennsylvania, the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board (Pa LCB) promulgated a new regulation that allows breweries to sell their beer to consumers on the premises of their breweries.  Previously, breweries could not sell their beer without a separate license.  Now, smaller brewers will be not be forced to shell out additional fees for a license to serve.  The regulation became effective on May 30, 2015.

Read the LCB’s summary of the new regulation here.

Celebrating National Beer Day!

Cheers!

Cheers!

Once again it’s time to celebrate National Beer Day – April 7, 1933 – the day it became legal to sell beer after 13 years of Prohibition.  While many U.S. breweries and their recipes were lost forever due to Prohibition, Pennsylvania breweries are standing strong today.  Check out my article in Ticket Entertainment on the Brewers of Pennsylvania “Meeting of the Malts IV” where the  success of Pennsylvania brewing was celebrated last week! 

So tonight take a moment to raise a pint of local craft brew and thank your brewer for giving us something truly to appreciate!

Cheers!
