NM Brewers Sales Provision Struck by Governor

Share Post

Following passage by the legislature, the Governor has declined to approve provisions of Senate Bill 204 which sought to allow for New Mexico winegrowers and New Mexico brewers to sell and serve New Mexico wine and New Mexico beer at private celebrations that are off of the licensed premises, allowing for sales to begin at 11 a.m. in any local option district. As proposed for small brewer’s and winegrowers, the term “private celebration” meant any celebratory activity that is held in a private or public venue not open to the general public and for which attendance is subject to private invitation. A “private celebration” may be held on or off the winegrower’s or the brewer’s premises after the applicable fees have been paid and the appropriate permit has been issued.
