Alcoholic beverage control; tied house exception. Creates an exception to the tied house prohibition on the retail sale of alcoholic beverages by manufacturers of distilled spirits for any manufacturer of distilled spirits located within the Commonwealth, not under common control or ownership with any other distillery, that is under common control or ownership with a restaurant licensed to sell spirits at retail in Virginia, provided that such manufacturer produces no more than 5,000 gallons of spirits annually and does not require the retail licensee to exclude from sale at the restaurant alcoholic beverages of other manufacturers, bottlers, or wholesalers. The bill would allow the issuance of a retail license to such manufacturer. Amends § 4.1-215, of the Code of Virginia. Read the Bill »
