|Subject:||Amendment to Liquor Code for Festivals and Farm Markets|
|In the near future, we plan to introduce legislation to amend the Liquor Code, providing for two new permits to be utilized by breweries licensed by the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board (PLCB).
The first permit is a special permit to participate in wine and food festivals in the Commonwealth. This permit will allow the holder to sell by the glass, bottle or package malt and brewed beverages manufactured by the permittee. The permit may be obtained for no more than one hundred days per calendar year and may not be used for more than thirty consecutive days.
The second permit is a farmer’s market permit which will enable the permittee to sell malt and brewed beverages he or she manufactured at farmer’s markets throughout the Commonwealth. The permittee may not sell more than one hundred forty-four fluid ounces in a single sale to one individual. Farmer’s markets are defined in the legislation as any building, structure or other place used by two or more farmers, certified by the Department of Agriculture to participate in the Farmer’s Market Nutrition Program, for the purpose of selling agricultural commodities produced in the Commonwealth directly to consumers.
Please join us in co-sponsoring this legislation. If you have any questions regarding this legislation, please contact Christine Zubeck in my office at 717-787-6123 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your consideration.
Introduced as SB1060
