Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Liquor Control Act of 1934. Authorizes a class 1 brewer or class 2 brewer to obtain a beer showcase permit. Makes conforming changes. Provides that a class 3 brewer licensee who meets certain criteria may obtain a self-distribution exemption to allow the sale of not more than 77,500 (instead of 6,200) gallons of beer from each in-state or out-of-state class 3 brewery premises, which shall not exceed 232,500 (instead of 18,600) gallons annually in the aggregate, to retail licensees and certain brewers. Provides that a class 2 brewer may transfer up to 139,500 gallons (instead of 31,000 gallons) of beer to a brew pub wholly owned and operated by the class 2 brewer. With regard to special event retailer's licenses and special use permit licenses, provides that those licenses shall allow the licensee to sell and offer for sale, at retail, alcoholic liquors for consumption on or off the premises specified in the license (instead of for use or consumption), but not for resale in any form. Removes a provision requiring certain brewers to file a report of their water usage. Provides that any retail licensee or licensed manufacturer with retail privileges may offer incentives to consumers for participation in a consumer loyalty and reward program.
