HARRISBURG — The Pennsylvania Liquor Control board released its 2016-17 Retail Year in Review report, which tracks consumer tastes and sales trends across Pennsylvania and helps the board improve its selection of products sold at Fine Wine & Good Spirits stores.

The report is for the 2016-17 retail year.

Among its findings, the report said:
