Alcoholic beverage control; privileges of distiller's license. Allows distiller's licensees to (i) sell at retail the brands of alcoholic beverages that the licensee owns at premises described in the license for on-premises consumption and in closed containers for off-premises consumption and (ii) offer samples of such products to individuals visiting the licensed premises. Under current law, distiller's licensees may only sell such alcoholic beverages at government stores established by the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board on the distiller's licensed premises. The bill levies on alcoholic beverages sold by distiller's licensees to consumers at retail a tax of 20 percent of the price charged. Read the Bill »
