PA Senate Bill 674

On June 6, a Pennsylvania Senate committee gave a 9-2 endorsement to a bill that would permit beer distributors to sell ales, malts and lagers by the six-pack.  Now the bill moves to the full Senate, where it may not see a vote until fall.  But I wrote to my Senator today, and encourage you to do the same!  (Find your Senator’s contact info)

As with any legislation, it is complex, so make sure you know what you’re talking about before putting it in writing, and as with any advocacy message, keep it short and simple. 

Major newspapers are providing coverage, Keystone Politics dedicated coverage, and of course, you can go right to the source.  Keep your eyes on this one – it isn’t offering the convenience of grocery store sales, but it does allow enthusists new options for the purchase of smaller quantities.
