Pennsylvania Gas Stations Will Soon Be Allowed to Sell Six Packs

Pennsylvania Governor Wolf announced Wednesday that you soon will be able to buy six packs at your local gas stations.

A recent Commonwealth Court ruling clarifies this piece of Pennsylvania Liquor Code and allows for the sale of malt or brewed beverages at gas stations and other businesses. This ruling sets important precedent that affirms the PLCB’s authority to improve customer experience and make purchasing beer more convenient for Pennsylvanians.

Governor Wolf has requested a policy change at the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board to free the six-pack and allow for gas stations to sell six-packs of beer as long as they regularly and customarily prepare and sell food, have a serving area of not less than 300 square feet, and are equipped with tables and chairs accommodating at least 30 persons at one time.

According to Wolf, "creating and following this precedent will make the commonwealth more inviting for customers and businesses, and it will address a long standing failing of our liquor and alcohol system. Soon, it will be easier than ever to stop by your local Sheetz, Wawa or Rutters and to grab your favorite brews!"
