The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board (PLCB) unanimously approved the sale of six-packs at gas stations at nine business that submitted applications Wednesday. The decision comes after Gov. Tom Wolf sent a letter to the regulatory agency urging approval.
Wolf's letter, 'Free the Six-Pack,' called for the approval of 12 license applications that would permit the sale of "up to 192 ounces of malt or brewed beverages" at gas stations.
A spokesperson for the PLCB said the board heard and approved nine applications Wednesday, and said there are other applications still in the pipeline that will be heard at a later date.
Gov. Wolf praised the PLCB Wednesday afternoon after the decision.
