Liquor Bill Means Changes

Bill H.B. 242 will allow Pennsylvania distillers to sell their product on site and in two satellite locations has passed the state senate and is expected to be signed into law by Governor Corbett. With the law going on the books, look for Philadelphia Distilling’s Robert Cassell to open “a more tourist-friendly facility near Center City.” [Philly Post]

Also in Bill H.B. 242, brunch can start earlier as restaurants, hotels and country clubs will be allowed to serve alcohol on Sundays at 9 a.m., as long as it is served  with a meal.

The third piece of good news in the bill is that beer distributors will now be allowed to sell beer from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Sundays. More than double the current noon to 5 p.m. hours.
