The world's two biggest beer makers will join forces to create a company that produces almost a third of the world's beer, as Budweiser maker AB InBev announced Wednesday, Nov. 11, 2015, a final agreement to buy SABMiller for $107 billion.

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – The Pennsylvania Senate has approved legislation that would allow beer distributors to sell beer for off-site consumption in any amount, including six-packs and growlers.

The bill, approved Monday, would let manufacturers 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 legislation now heads to the state House of Representatives.

A spokesman for Wolf was non-committal Monday night on whether the governor would sign the bill.

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