LCB Requirement to serve food

Recommended Posts

Is it just me or is does it seem like a really dumb idea to make the stores that sell beer and wine to also serve food. Like a gas station or a grocery store. It just seems a little much. They don't serve food ( not even cheese) at the LCB stores run by the state.

I don't get that either. IMO, it's an incredible waste of money and space.

It was pretty much the opposite, if a restaurant wanted to serve alcohol then they had to be a real food service location and not just a bar.  They have different LCB regulations.

You said it all right there. The state owns the liquor stores and can do what they want. They also issue the licenses and can write the rules. Social clubs have way different rules than bars as far as the state goes. The state of PA sure does have some outdated laws.

Just a hoop that you need to jump through.  I researched a brewers license a few years ago.  It's a super cheap license and they food requirements are pretty lax.  You can serve soft pretzels and cheese trays to be in compliance.

Would I want a business where I would have to serve clients like me?  Probably why I'm not in the bar business!

Technically PA doesn't have bars.  ....we have restaurants that serve alcohol.  For them to get the license to serve alcohol they have to sell so much food for consumption on premise.
