Current Bill Summary

HCS/SB 786 - This act modifies provisions relating to homebrewers and liquor licenses on boats.


Current law provides that intoxicating liquor manufactured without a license for personal or family use may not be offered for sale. This act specifies that the liquor shall not be sold or offered for sale.

Under current law, beer brewed for personal or family use may be used at organized affairs. This act replaces the word "affairs" with "events".

This act specifies that the admission fee for any organized event at which home-brewed beer is available without a separate charge is not to be considered a sale of the beer so long as the home brewer does not receive proceeds from the fee and the beer consumption occurs on certain types of licensed premises.

This provision is identical to a provision of the truly agreed to and finally passed SCS/HCS/HB 1304 (2014) and HB 1838 (2014).


Under current law, a person may receive a license to sell liquor by the drink on any boat licensed by the United States Coast Guard to carry 100 or more passengers.

This act provides that such a license may be issued for boats licensed to carry 30 or more passengers.

This repeals a provision of current law that allows a person to get a license to serve liquor by the drink at retail for consumption on a boat that can carry 45 to 99 passengers and is on Table Rock Lake.

This provision is identical to a provision of HB 1615 (2014).
