Group launches “liquor liberty” website discouraging Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board oversight

    Three guesses as to what LetFreedomDrink.com is all about.

    Nope, it’s got nothing to do with lowering the drinking age or letting college kids just have a good time.

    The website, launched today, is the Commonwealth Foundation‘s move to get the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board to unclench its grasp on wholesale wine and spirits sales.

    “This Web site not only issues a ‘last call’ for the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board as the sole proprietor, but serves as a one-stop shop for the facts,” Commonwealth Foundation President Matthew J. Brouillette said in his announcement.

    Included on the site is a 13-point factsheet about why the Foundation says the PLCB sales system is “irrevocably broken.”
