Pennsylvania taverns now have their own YouTube channel to help the Keystone State’s bar owners learn more about happenings at the State Capitol as well as other industry news.
The channel — Pennsylvania Tavern Talk — can be found by clicking here.
“YouTube Channels created by vloggers are very popular for entertainment and educational purposes,” said Chuck Moran, Executive Director of the Pennsylvania Licensed Beverage and Tavern Association. “I created this channel to have another vehicle to get the word out about issues bar owners are facing while also giving bar owners a place to go and learn more about issues.”
In the inaugural vlog, posted on January 23, 2023, Moran takes a look at a co-sponsorship memo from State Representative Sheryl Delozier. In this memo, she indicates soon she’ll be re-introducing legislation that would allow minors who are musicians to play in Pennsylvania’s licensed establishments.
That vlog can be accessed directly via https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T0Op026u19g.
According to Moran, the Pennsylvania Licensed Beverage and Tavern Association regularly tracks a few hundred bills at the State Capitol during each two-year legislative cycle. Education on some of those bills can be easily transformed into a vlog.
As far as future vlogs, Moran says he’ll be looking closely at all co-sponsorship memos and bills, but also wants to take a look at how Pennsylvania bar owners are being squeezed by inflation, legislatively created competition, and outdated liquor code that doesn’t allow flexibility to find new revenue streams.
For now, he invites those interested to subscribe to the channel and look for future vlogs.
The Pennsylvania Licensed Beverage and Tavern Association is the state’s political voice for family-owned, small business taverns, bars, and licensed restaurants.
