Mandelbaum faces an additional charge of possession of drug paraphrenalia, officials said.

BLCE officers launched a criminal investigation after responding to advertisements on the website and purchasing homemade beer from defendants.

As part of the investigation, officers executing search warrants at their homes seized large quantities of malt or brewed beverages, the BLCE said.

Charges were filed via summons before district court Judge James A. Lenker in Harrisburg.
