Pennsylvania bars and restaurants are now allowed to sell cocktails-to-go after Gov. Wolf today signed the bill into law.

“This new temporary rule creates more business for bars and restaurants when they need it, helps to meet customer demand and supports social distancing,” Wolf said in a statement. “As we approach the holiday weekend, I encourage all Pennsylvanians to remember to drink responsibly.”

Bars, restaurants and hotels that have lost 25% of average monthly total sales during the COVID-19 pandemic can now sell cocktails-to-go, but the drinks must be sold in containers with a secure lid before 11 p.m.

“I think it’s fine. People are able to take wine out of the restaurant along with their food and and if they want a half-gallon of margaritas or Bloody Mary or something, if it helps the bottom line for these struggling restaurants, then it’s fine, as long as people are 21 or over,” Philly Mayor Kenney said earlier this week. “I see no problem with it.”
