PA-Gov: Wolf Wants to “Free the Six-Pack”

Governor-WolfGovernor Tom Wolf is staking out the pro-beer position.

Over the past few days, the Governor and his team have advocated for the sale of malt and brewed beverages at the commonwealth’s gas stations.

“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,” Wolf’s spokesman Jeff Sheridan wrote in a separate post.

“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,” he concludes. “Soon, it will be easier than ever to stop by your local Sheetz, Wawa or Rutters and to grab your favorite brews! It’s time to free the six-pack, Pennsylvania.”

The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board subsequently approved nine applications for businesses to sell up to 192 ounces of malt or brewed beverages.

“‘Freeing the six-pack’ will make the commonwealth more inviting for customers and businesses,” Governor Tom Wolf responded. “I applaud the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board for approving these applications and respectfully ask that they approve similar subsequent applications that otherwise meet PLCB standards in order to improve customer service and convenience for Pennsylvania.”

  2. Nice head fake. He is severely unpopular and desperately trying to give himself a makeover by actually doing what Pennsylvanians really want. The Next thing he should do is fire that idiot spokesman

  3. Keep them in the deli’s. This will just keep the money flowing to the top away from the small businesses trying to make it in the world.

  4. Just like they have been SO rampant in the vast majority of other states that allow alcohol to be sold in grocery stores and gas stations…….Oh wait…..

  5. Go on Heroin epidemic tour ; so get them all drunk. Sounds logical. This administration is idiotic.

  6. I think “free the nipple” would be safer.

    Expect increase in drunk driving.
