You can get a special license in Pennsylvania to deliver beer. It’s a fascinating cocktail blend of our favorite licensing topics — home deliveries and liquor.
The specific license required is called a “Transport for Hire Class B”. It costs $700 to apply and there’s an annual $160 licensing fee. Approval takes weeks and there’s a limit on the sale of how much beer can be sold: 192 oz or two six-packs of 16-oz bottles. The order must be paid for by credit card—the delivery person cannot accept cash at the door—and he or she must ask to see identification from the customer. Hard liquor and wine may not be delivered.
