LEGISLATIVE HEARING FRIDAY ON TAKE OUT ALCOHOL
Tomorrow, Friday, July 31st at 11:00 am, there will be a public hearing on LR 3333, which would extend take-out alcohol through April 15, 2022.
Here is part of the proposal’s summary:
This bill temporarily permits, until April 15, 2022, certain categories of on-premises retailers to sell liquor to customers through take-out and delivery service if the liquor is accompanied by a food order. The bill also temporarily permits licensed Maine distilleries and small distilleries that operate tasting rooms but that do not operate licensed on-premises retail establishments to sell spirits through take-out and delivery service unaccompanied by a food order.
Under the bill, wine and malt liquor may only be sold for off-premises consumption in an original container. Spirits may only be sold for off-premises consumption as an ingredient of an approved cocktail, which must be sealed in a tamper-evident container bearing a label identifying the vendor.
