The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board has awarded over $700,000 in grants to 13 projects to increase production of Pennsylvania-made malt and brewed beverages.
The grants are also to enhance the state's beer industry through promotion, marketing and research-based programs.
Gov. Tom Wolf says brewing beer is an important industry to Pennsylvania.
“Pennsylvania has a long, proud history of producing some of the finest malt and brewed beverages in the country,” said Board Chairman Tim Holden. “Pennsylvania-based breweries are flourishing, and the PLCB is proud to support the continued development of the commonwealth’s beer industry through these grants.”
