Pennsylvania lawmaker proposes allowing canned cocktails in grocery stores

(WHTM) – A Pennsylvania lawmaker wants to allow ready-to-drink beverages or canned cocktails in grocery stores and other locations not operated by state stores.

Pennsylvania State Senator Mike Regan (R-Cumberland/York) said in a memo to House members that these prepackaged liquor products are currently only allowed to be sold at State Stores because the base alcohol is liquor.

“Unfortunately, only limited products are currently being offered, and those sales account for less than two percent of shelf space in stores,” says Regan. ” As these products continue to grow, they are flooding into neighboring states, while Pennsylvania’s selection remains limited.”
