Share Post

Senate Bill 1273 requires the ABC Board to adopt regulations that prescribe the terms and conditions under which tour guides employed by a licensed brewery that manufactures no more than 10,000 barrels of beer during the license year may consume samples of the beer manufactured on the licensed premises while conducting tours of the premises. The bill provides that the samples of beer shall not exceed four ounces, that no more than three product samples may be consumed by the tour guide, and that the purpose of the consumption is to feature and educate the consuming public visiting the licensed premises about the beer being tasted.
