Accomac Inn and Accomac Events President, Charlene Calvert-Campbell, was quoted in a recent article by the Central Penn Business Journal. The article entitled, Businesses React to Liquor Law Changes, details the effect of the new laws on caterers and other proposed liquor changes that are in the works.

Here is an excerpt from the article:

Midstate liquor license-holding catering businesses are looking forward to providing a new service for clients now that the state has opted to relax restrictions to let them supply the alcohol they serve at off-site events.

Until the rule change goes into effect later this month, event hosts such as fathers of brides need to provide their own alcohol to locations that are considered outside the geographic constraints of their caterers’ retail and hotel liquor licenses. That is a burden on customers and the new policy is welcomed, said Charlene Calvert-Campbell, president of Hellam Township-based Accomac Inn,Inc. During prime summer wedding season, some venues Accomac works with have receptions scheduled for Friday, Saturday and Sunday. So there is little way for a family to drop off alcohol much before the event, Calvert-Campbell said.

It often has to be delivered the day of the nuptials, she said, and then the family needs to arrange for someone among them to take possession of the alcohol after the festivities.”Let’s face it. Everybody is getting ready for this wedding,” which leaves them little time to deal with the alcohol logistics, Calvert-Campbell said. The new policy will allow Accomac and others like it to provide the next level of service for brides and grooms and other clients, she said.
