Pennsylvania may end "Beer Case Law"

Moderate drinkers at Pennsic take heart. The end of Pennsylvania's beer "case law," which requires purchase of an entire case of beer at a time, may be at hand.

The new law will allow purchase of six-packs or twelve-packs of beer, rather than full cases, at the state's numerous beer stores. Some bars and restaurants may also be eligible to sell beer in six and twelve packs, although sale would be limited to two. The law is currently in the state's legislature and is expected to pass.
