COVID-19 (Coronavirus) has drastically impacted all facets of everyday life, including the way in which alcohol sales can be conducted. Though most jurisdictions have banned dine-in customers at restaurants, bars and tap rooms, many have permitted on-premise licensees to temporarily sell to consumers through delivery, curb-side pickup, or off-premise sales. It is imperative to contact legal counsel to identify and navigate the changes and additional approvals that may be necessary to continue to operate during the outbreak.
Husch Blackwell is experienced navigating the licensing requirements of state, city, and county alcohol laws and regulations. Our Alcohol and Beverage lawyers are available to discuss these developments and how companies can appropriately comply with new requirements that can develop opportunities for continued sales.
