State beer distributors lost out yesterday in a bid to get the legislature to pass a bill that would allow them to join in the lucrative business of selling wine coolers. As the General Assembly rushed to pass a new state budget before breaking for a long summer recess, the Senate voted 25-23 to return the wine-cooler bill to committee. The House, meantime, put off a vote on a controversial bill sponsored by anti-abortion groups that would place the abortion clinics under the certificate-of-need restrictions of the state Health Department.

Despite opposition from state liquor control officials, Pennsylvania beer distributors won a preliminary round yesterday in their fight to tap the fast-growing market in wine coolers. By a 6-3 vote, the Senate Law and Justice Committee voted to approve legislation to give distributors the authority to sell wine coolers. Wine coolers are now sold only in State Stores. Wine coolers are a mixture of wine and fruit juices. Heavily promoted by their manufacturers, they have become the fastest growing part of the beverage market, a spokesman for the beer distributors said.
