Church Brew Works Liquor License
Although the Church was not the first brewpub in Pennsylvania, it was the first to receive a full liquor license on December 6, 1996. Prior to that date, brewpubs were only permitted to sell the beer brewed. Despite having a restaurant tie, they were not permitted to sell wine or spirits until late 1996. Seam Casey
