(Harrisburg) -- The state Senate has voted to pass legislation that would, among other things, allow beer distributors to sell beer for off-site consumption in any amount, including six-packs and growlers.

The proposal would permit manufacturers to ship up to 192 ounces of beer to consumers each month.

Consumers would also be able to buy mixed drinks at the state's sporting venues that currently sell beer.

The full state House must still approve it and then, it would go to Governor Tom Wolf.

A spokesman for Wolf was non-committal on whether the governor would sign the measure.

The state enacted sweeping changes to its liquor laws over the summer, including allowing grocery stores to sell wine.
