What role do wholesalers play in Pennsylvania's alcohol industry?

Beer wholesalers are a critical component in our current three tier distribution system designed to provide consumers with an enormous variety of choices at a great value, to generate tax revenues that can be collected efficiently from the industry and to encourage moderation and responsibility in consumption.

There are few products in the market today that come in as many different styles as beer. The wholesaler gives these smaller, more unique beers a vehicle to market hence providing consumers with the selection they deserve. What many don't know is that wholesalers do a lot more than simply deliver beer to adults of legal drinking age. Wholesalers are very active within their communities and work diligently to provide choice and variety to consumers across Pennsylvania.
