PA Beer Gets Boost

Governor Tom Wolf has announced the launch of the PA Preferred Brews initiative, a branding program dedicated specifically for beers brewed in Pennsylvania using agricultural commodities grown in the state. The goal of the new program, which builds on the existing PA Preferred program under the state Department of Agriculture, is to further support the state’s beer industry following the passage of 2016 legislation to modernize beer sales and improve customer convenience.
