It’s not overgeneralizing to admit that New Jersey’s liquor laws are far better than Pennsylvania’s. Unlike here in Pennsylvania, Jersey residents do not have to depend on a state monopoly of liquor stores and can even shop for beer at grocery stores. But some parts of New Jersey still have restrictive liquor laws in regard to restaurants and bars (what are called “consumption licenses”) and are working to change it. The Inquirer reported on Moorestown’s efforts to revoke the town’s dry status. Encouraged by the example of Cherry Hill, they hope to attract high-end, Stephen Starr-type restaurants to town.
