Wine aficionados — or those looking to buy wine along with their other grocery items — will be able to do so at nearly 20 Philadelphia-area grocery stores and other food-and-beverage establishments.
The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board this week approved up to 84 wine expanded permits, following a bill that expanded wine and beer sales in grocery stores, licensed restaurants, hotels and bars went into affect on Aug. 8.
Seventeen establishments in the Philadelphia region were among the 84 that were given the OK. About 174 requests were submitted in total. Most of the Philadelphia permits are in Montgomery County, with only one in Philadelphia proper.
Each permit was approved after verification that the applicant met all statutory requirements and provided information required for the permit to be granted, according to the Control Board, which said a wine expanded permit can't be granted unless the licensee is certified through the Responsible Alcohol Management Program.
