HCS/HB 121 - This act contains provisions relating to intoxicating liquor.

LIQUOR ADVERTISING - 311.067

This act allows a retailer to advertise a sale or price discount on intoxicating liquor sold or provided at retail in the original package so long as the retailer assumes the cost of the sale and the advertised retail price is not below the retailer's cost.

In addition, this act specifies that the Supervisor of Alcohol and Tobacco Control may consider the implications of the 1st and 21st amendments to the United States Constitution and any other constitutional requirements if deciding whether to promulgate new regulations not specifically required by general law and if considering the repeal or modification of existing regulations as allowed by general law.

This provision is identical to HCS/HB 165 (2015) and SCS/HB 279 (2015).

BREW-ON-PREMISES LICENSE - 311.910

This act creates a brew-on-premises license for a person who provides brewing supplies and facilities to members of the public for the private manufacture of beer, malt beverages, cider, mead, or wine on licensed premises.

This act also prohibits a person from permitting the use of his or her property for payment for the production of beer, malt beverages, cider, mead, or wine for personal consumption without a brew-on-premises license.

The license does not authorize the sale or consumption of alcoholic beverages on the premises.

The initial license fee is $50 and the annual renewal fee is $25.

This act contains a list of conditions that licensees must comply with. Individuals using the licensee's premises for personal brewing must be at least 21 years old and may produce a certain specified amount of beer, malt beverages, cider, mead, or wine on the premises. In addition, the individuals may not transport more than 20 gallons of such beverages on a given day and may not sell the beverages. The beverages may only be removed from the premises for the personal use of the customer.

This act gives the Division of Alcohol and Tobacco Control rulemaking authority.

This act requires the issuance of a special permit to an out-of-state manufacturer who is not licensed in Missouri for participation in festivals, bazaars, or similar events. Certain registration requirements under current law are waived for the event. The amount of intoxicating liquor shipped in the state must not exceed 200 gallons. This act specifies how excise taxes must be paid. The special permit is only valid for up to 72 hours and a $25 fee is required.

This provision is identical to a provision of SCS/HB 279 (2015).
