EASTON, Pa. (AP) — Want a six-pack delivered with your pizza?

Thanks to a recent ruling by the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board, businesses with retail liquor licenses can legally bring suds to the front door as long as they also obtain what’s known as a transporter-for-hire license.

The Express-Times of Easton (http://bit.ly/1BUInmC ) reports that 19 license holders statewide have so far requested permission to begin home delivery of beer, including four restaurants in the Lehigh Valley region that includes Allentown, Bethlehem and Easton.

Mike Gilbert is bar manager at the 50 Yard Line Sports Bar at Pizza Como in Bethlehem. He says customers have been asking for home delivery for years.

The rule limits delivery to a maximum of a 12-pack of 16-ounce beers. Wine and liquor are ineligible for delivery.
