Senate Passes Bill To Allow Beer & Wine Through Mail [UPDATED]

You used to mail letters.  You used to mail checks.  In 2012, you get a lot of bills, and junk mail.  Even Netflix is shipping fewer movies, in the wake of streaming video.  The United States Postal Service has seen a decrease in traditional mail, and it’s affecting salaries and the postal workforce.

In an attempted to stimulate the traditional mail medium, the United States Senate is currently considering a bi-partisan bill that would allow for the shipping of beer and wine through the mail.   A vote is expected in May on whether to move forward with the bill.

One of the bill’s sponsors comes from Dogfish Head’s homestate of Delaware – Senator Tom Carper.

UPDATE 4/26:  Senate passes the bill, headed to the House.
