Tasting Room Sales on Tap in Florida

Share Post

Amended before passing initial committee consideration, H.B.107, among other provisions, would expressly allow taproom sales to consumers for on-premises or off-premises consumption (including growlers which are specified to be containers of 32, 64, and 128 ounces) without obtaining a vendor’s license. Additionally, the bill provides for written franchise agreements of no more than 5 years’ duration if the supplier is not a “primary manufacturer” defined as one providing more than 50 percent by volume of the malt beverages purchased by and delivered to a distributor per calendar year and self-distribution of up to 2,000 kegs annually to vendors who are not within the exclusive sales territory of a distributor with whom the manufacturer is under contract.
