Pennsylvania: recent changes in serving...

On November 21, 2019, Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf signed into law House Bill 947 (now known as Act 86 of 2019) in order to address the inconsistent alcoholic beverage serving hours between breweries and distilleries. The bill shifts the hours in which both types of establishments and other facilities are permitted to serve alcoholic beverages and creates the “Commercial and Mixed-Use Overlay Project” development type for buildings built after January 1, 2019. Moving forward, the state’s alcoholic beverage license quota will not consider licenses granted under Commercial and Mixed-Use Overlay Projects.
