CA Satellite Locations Legislation Amended in Senate

Share Post

Amended on third reading in the Senate, Assembly Bill 2307 increases the limit, from six to eight, of authorized branch office locations for a licensed beer manufacturer and increases the corresponding limit, from two to four, on these branch locations being bona fide eating places owned and operated by the beer manufacturer. A beer manufacturer cannot receive its last two duplicate branch office licenses until the manufacturer has held its sixth duplicate branch license for at least one year. This bill also repeals the requirement that a branch office location only sell beer and wine purchased from a licensed wholesaler that is not owned by the beer manufacturer and increases the number of locations to eight at which a beer manufacturer may exercise retail privileges, provided that no more than six of the locations may be on-sale licenses.
