HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – Beer distributors may soon be getting the authority to sell suds in smaller quantities, and fans at sporting venues could be allowed to buy liquor.
The state House voted 133 to 59 late Wednesday night to alter how beer is packaged and sold, allowing configurations such as six packs and growlers at distributors.
It also would let bars sell alcohol starting at 9 a.m. on Sundays, without a requirement to serve food, and allow consumers to have up to 192 ounces of beer per month shipped directly to their homes from out-of-state wholesalers or retailers.
The measure is now on its way to the state Senate for its consideration.
It follows sweeping changes to Pennsylvania liquor laws enacted this summer, including allowing wine sales in grocery stores.
