SB17-253 - Alcohol Manufacturer Customer Sales

Postponed Indefinitely
Concerning increasing the authority for certain providers of alcohol beverages to provide beverages to customers from approved sales rooms.

Currently, a brewery licensed as a wholesaler may conduct tastings and sell its alcohol beverage products at its licensed premises, and a spirits distillery or winery may do so at its licensed premises and at one additional sales room. The bill permits these licensees to operate up to 2 additional sales rooms. The brewery sales room locations are limited to three consecutive days.

Current law authorizes the state licensing authority to specify, by rule, the time by which a local licensing authority must submit a response to an application to operate a temporary sales room for not more than 3 days. The bill applies this standard to a brewery.

(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
