Hi, thank you for your question.
It appears that your license differs from that of a brewery.
Hello, I just need a little peace of mind that i can sell beer in growlers to go and I will still be operating within the laws
23401 appears to expressly prohibit you from filling up growlers or jugs. According to the code: "None of the licensees mentioned in this section may, by reason of any license mentioned in this section, label, bottle, package, or refill any package with any alcoholic beverage."
My understanding is that your license would technically allow you to sell growlers already pre-filled from a brewer who provides them to you--as along as they have the proper license.
I believe the confusion is coming from the fact that some brewers have retail operations.
okay. that makes sense. this answered my question. thanks
They may have the right to fill growlers--even those of other breweries-- as long as they are properly labeled.
when you speak of "they" that is the brewery?
Yes, the brewery.
ok. got it
That was a quick question....anything else I can answer while you have me?
On the same topic--no additional cost :)
can i deliver beer to with pizza deliveries?
I know your license allows sales to go. Let me double check if you can make deliveries.
Also, can I allow to patrons to bring their own bottle of wine or beer?
I need to leave work now. Is there some way i can receive your answers when i get home?
I really wish there was some sort of unique concept I can do with my alcohol license.
Sorry for the delay. I'll switch to Q&A and you can get the answers by email.
