Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board extends license fee waiver for wineries, breweries and distilleries through 2021

PITTSBURGH — The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board announced it has approved the waiving of license fees in 2021 for wineries, breweries and distilleries, a total sum estimated to be valued at $1.8 million. PLCB also said fees used for sacramental wine licensees will be waived for 2021 as well.

In October, PLCB waived nearly $28 million fees for retail licensees that were impacted the most by the Covid-19 pandemic which included restaurant, retail dispenser, club, catering club and hotel licensee holders.

“We realize that Pennsylvania beverage alcohol producers are also struggling during this public health crisis, so we are extending the waiver of certain fees for wineries, breweries, and distilleries,” PLCB Chairman Tim Holden said in a press release.
