HB15-1204 - Distillery Pub Alcohol Beverage License

Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning The Creation Of A Distillery Pub License.

The bill creates a new license under the "Colorado Liquor Code", referred to as a distillery pub license, that would enable a spirituous liquor (spirits) producer to operate a pub that serves alcohol beverages, including spirits the producer ferments and distills, for consumption on the licensed premises. A distillery pub license would operate similar to a brew pub license in that the licensee must:

  • Serve meals;
  • Gross at least 15% of on-premises food and drink income from the sale of food;
  • Limit wholesale sales of spirits it ferments and distills on the licensed premises to not more than 2,700 liters (300 cases) per product per year; and
  • Limit its total annual production of spirits to 45,000 liters (5,000 cases).

A distillery pub licensee is subject to the same state and local annual licensing fees as a brew pub, $325 and $500, respectively. Additionally, similar to brew pub licensees, a distillery pub licensee may own or have an interest in another alcohol beverage licensee authorized to serve alcohol for on-premises consumption.
