PICKUP
Q: I thought that you guys were doing pickup at your bar . Is that no longer the case?
A: Due to a high-volume of demand for deliveries and government mandates limiting folks to shelter at home, we determined to shift our focus solely towards delivery and takeout. We apologize for any inconvenience but everything that is available for pickup is also available for delivery.


Q:   Is there a limit to the amount of malt or brewed beverages that a retail licensee holding a transporter-for-hire license may transport at one (1) time?

No. While a retail licensee is limited to sales of malt or brewed beverages for off- premises consumption in quantities of one hundred ninety-two (192) fluid ounces or less of malt or brewed beverages in a single sale to one (1) person [47 P.S. § 4-407], a transporter-for-hire licensee does not have this limitation. Therefore, a retail licensee that holds a transporter-for-hire license may transport and/or deliver multiple orders to one (1) or more consumers or locations. Retail licensees should keep records demonstrating that they have not exceeded the one hundred ninety-two (192) fluid ounces limitation.

     Twenty-one (21). The Crimes Code prohibits any minor who is under twenty-one (21) from intentionally transporting liquor or malt or brewed beverages. [18 Pa. C.S. § 6308(a)]. Therefore, no one under twenty-one (21) years of age may deliver malt or brewed beverages for a transporter-for-hire licensee. Although there is an exception for employees of distributor and importing distributor licensees, there is no such exception for other licensees such as transporters-for-hire or retail licensees. [47 P.S. § 4-493(27)]. 

Q: Is a transporter-for-hire licensee required to check ID upon delivery? 

Yes. The transporter-for-hire licensee is required to check the identification of the individual accepting the delivery and it must maintain records to document the verification of IDs.

A retail licensee that holds a transporter-for-hire license cannot accept payment for the malt and brewed beverages at the time of delivery. 

Q:  May a retail licensee that holds a transporter-for-hire license charge a delivery fee at the time of delivery?

Yes, as long as the delivery fee does not include payment for the malt or brewed beverages.
