On June 8, 2016 we received some great news; Governor Wolf signed House Bill 1690, or otherwise known as Act 39 of 2016. So what does the signing of this bill mean for Manatawny Still Works? A lot.
The bill changes more than thirty-five sections of the Pennsylvania Liquor Code and adds a number of new sections. The changes not only affect whom we sell to, but whom we can buy from as well. The act specifically allows in-house sales of wine, ciders, and beer in distilleries. So what does that mean?? It means you can start enjoying Manatawny Still Works at participating breweries all over Pennsylvania - check out Saint Benjamin Brewing Company in Philly, they're now pouring our handcrafted spirits.
In addition to this, you can enjoy some of your favorite PA Craft Brews, here, at our tasting room in Pottstown.
The bill will be changing the way the Pennsylvania craft industry operates – creating a sort of craft family within the state. It’s beyond exciting to see the potential that the bill holds to solidify and join the differing industries together. I find it a joy to have the opportunity to work with breweries, having a personal past in the beer industry, where my career began. I have been in discussions with different breweries to make them an unique whiskey, using beer from their own brew houses.
For the consumers...like you, you will have more opportunities to experience PA craft products. Restrictions have been removed for state store hours and we can now sell directly at Food Expos like the Philadelphia Taste Festival this fall at the Valley Forge Casino. As well as finding your spirit of choice at breweries, wineries, and cideries, you can also pick some up for sale at your local Farmers’ Markets.
A new door of opportunity has been opened up for craft creation and we, at Manatawny Still Works, are excited to be a part of it. Pennsylvania alcohol laws are moving in the right direction, be proactive and go out and exercise your lawful rights
DRINK PA CRAFT!
