bill text

This bill would allow breweries and distilleries to transfer production between owned locations and set Department of Revenue reporting requirements.

For Breweries: The bill would remove the daily limit on retail sales for on-site consumption, yet hold in place the 288oz limit per person, per day for off-site consumption. It would further increase the maximum allowable annual retail sales threshold from 3,000 barrels to 6,000 barrels.

For Distilleries: The bill would remove the daily limit on retail sales per person for on-site consumption, yet hold in place the 4,500ml limit per person, per day for off-site consumption. Retail sales would be limited to sales at no more than 3 owned locations. The annual retail sales limit would change from 750 barrels a year to the difference between total aggregate production and total aggregate retail sales each quarter.
