NJ Senate Bill Addresses Allowable Brewery Activities

Share Post

Senate Bill 271 seeks to amend current law to authorize holders of a limited brewery license to: hold an unlimited number of on-premises special events, for which the license holder may sell tickets without obtaining a permit; hold up to 18 off-premises special events per year pursuant to a permit; deliver its product to a consumer’s home; sell soda, whether or not manufactured by the license holder; coordinate with a food vendor to provide food on the licensed premises; and provide menus to consumers. Further, the bill eliminates the requirement that the license holder provide a tour to a consumer prior to serving alcoholic beverages for consumption on the licensed premises and provides that pourers and servers employed by the licensed brewery are not required to be certified by an industry-recognized server training program.
