PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Several Pennsylvania lawmakers are raising questions about pop-up beer gardens in Philadelphia in a letter to the state agency that regulates alcohol.

The Philadelphia Daily News reported Saturday (https://bit.ly/1jJFHnA ) that the four ranking members on legislative committees that handle alcohol-related matters wrote to the Liquor Control Board to express “grave concern” about licensing practices that permit beer gardens.

They’re seeking an end to what has become a way for beer gardens to run continuously.

The law allows licensees with a catering permit to serve booze for private events at unlicensed locations, but now some are obtaining multiple permits and using them to operate beer gardens for weeks at a time.

Liquor Control Board chairman Skip Brion says he’s reviewing the law and talking with legislative leaders and his board.
