If you want to buy wine or alcohol in Pennsylvania, you have to go to a state store. If you want beer, you have to go to beer distributor. If you want just a six pack, only a handful of grocery stores sell them, but that could be changing.
On Monday, Channel 11’s Alan Jennings looked into a new plan to put six packs in more places.
Right now, the law reads that if you go to a distributor, you have to buy an entire case of beer.
The state legislature wants to allow you to buy a six pack at the distributor or even a 12 pack.
Jennings chose two beer customers at random to speak to about distributors selling six packs.
“I think they should be allowed because bars are allowed. I mean, you go into a bar you and buy a six pack,” said a woman.
“Why not sell them? It’s cheaper, right? It’s easier for the people who consume it,” said a man.
If beer is not your thing, the same legislation would allow restaurants and hotels to sell wine and spirits in any quantity. They would have to pay a $10,000 licensing fee to the state.
