Al’s Pizza & Pub in Enola is one of two restaurants in Cumberland County with a license to deliver beer to your door.
Owner Al Haulman has been in business for 30 years, and he says having a transporter-for-hire license is a big step forward for his business and convenient for his customers.
“Especially on rainy days and bad weather days and in the winter time, when people just want to stay home and watch a sporting event,” Haulman said.
Haulman says customers who order beer with their food will not be charged an extra delivery fee. The Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board says the sales must take place before 2 a.m, and customers can’t exceed 193 ounces of beer per trip. Haulman says people can order beer only, and have it delivered to their front door.
“I think it can help keep the roads a little safer by keeping some intoxicated people in their homes instead of them getting behind the wheel,” Haulman said.
According to the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board, the application fee for a transporter-for-hire license is $700 and restaurants must renew it annually at a cost of $160.
