Senate Bill 394 would authorize a brew pub, craft distillery, estate distillery or winery to make retail sales of certain alcoholic beverages for shipment to a location off the premises of the brew pub, craft distillery, estate distillery or winery, including sales made remotely through an Internet website or by telephone, mail, or fax. The bill limits the amount of malt beverages a brew pub is authorized to sell at retail for shipment to an off-premises location to not more than 54 liters per person per year and requires such shipments to be made by a common carrier or a regularly operating contract carrier.
