The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board announced a new regulation is in effect that allows the holder of a brewery license to serve its own beer for consumption on the licensed premises under certain conditions. Previously, a brewery licensee had to also obtain a brewery pub license in order to serve malt or brewed beverages (beer) for on-premises consumption. The regulation also allows a Brewery License holder to sell beer at its storage locations with the same requirements and restrictions of the licensed premises.
