A: Yes, a retail food store must check the identification of any person who does not reasonably appear to be an age of fifty (50) years or older in a face-to-face transaction prior to the sale of the wine. The identification checked must be a valid (unexpired), government-issued (state, local, national, or foreign) document that, includes the photograph and the birth date of the customer. Any identification that meets such requirements may be accepted by the retail food store. The sale of alcoholic beverages or beer to a minor or a failure to check for identification is a Class A misdemeanor under state law.

A: Yes. A retail package store must check identification for any person who does not reasonably appear to be an age of fifty (50) years or older in a face-to-face transaction prior to the sale of alcoholic beverages. The identification checked must be a valid (unexpired), government-issued (state, local, national, federally recognized tribe, or foreign) document that includes the photograph and birth date of the customer. Any identification that meets such requirements may be accepted by the retail package store. The sale of alcoholic beverages or beer to a minor or a failure to check for identification is a Class A misdemeanor under state law.
A: Yes. Complimentary samples are allowed. A retail package store may conduct tastings for free on the premises of the retail package store during the hours the store is open for business. In order to do so, the retail package store must first give the TABC notice of its intent to conduct tastings at the time of license application, renewal, or thereafter, if the store later decides it would like to conduct tastings. Samples may not exceed two ounces (2 oz.) for each wine or high gravity beer sample and may not exceed one half ounce ( oz.) for each liquor sample. A retail licensee or employee of the licensee may participate in the tasting. Employees of a retail package store do not need a server permit to pour such samples. The Commission will not consider a fully refundable reservation fee to be charging a fee for samples.
A: A retail package store may sell intoxicating liquors, wine, high gravity beer, and beer. A retail package store is also permitted to advertise or sell items related to or incidental to the use, consumption, dispensing, or storage of alcoholic beverages, together with merchandise and supplies related to special events or parties. The list of items a retail licensee may sell, contained in T.C.A. 57-3-404(e)(4), is illustrative in nature and non-exclusive. If you have questions on whether an item is allowed, please contact our staff. Such authorized items include, but are not limited to:
A: Yes. Wine must be marked up at least twenty percent (20%). Please review the Wine in Grocery Stores and Unfair Wine Sales Law FAQ for more information. Other alcoholic beverages, including liquor, spirits, and high gravity beer, must be marked up at least ten percent (10%). These minimum markups do not apply to low gravity beer. Please review the following questions for more information.
A: The ten percent (10%) markup is calculated by multiplying the per bottle price of a particular bottle of liquor, spirits, or high gravity beer by one and one tenth (1.1). The per bottle price is located on the latest wholesaler invoice. This is the minimum price that a store may advertise or sell a bottle of liquor, spirits, or high gravity beer. Calculation Example: If the per bottle price of a spirit on the wholesaler invoice is $10.00, the minimum price the retail package store may advertise or sell the bottle of that spirit is $11.00 ($10.00 x 1.1 = $11.00).
A: A closeout is a discount offered on a brand of liquor, spirits, or high gravity beer which will no longer be sold by a particular retailer. The brand being offered at closeout must have been sold by the retailer at least one hundred twenty (120) days prior to the beginning date of a closeout sale. A closeout sale must not last longer than ninety (90) days. The brand of liquor, spirits or high gravity beer being offered for sale in a closeout cannot be sold by the retailer for at least one (1) year after the closeout sale is concluded.
A: No, a retail package store generally may not sell alcoholic beverages below cost. The only exception is during the final liquidation of a business. A retail package store is allowed to sell alcoholic beverages below cost in the event the licensee is not in debt with any wholesaler and provides a thirty day, irrevocable notice of surrender of its license to the Commission. Even during the final liquidation of a business when a retail package store may sell alcoholic beverages below cost, it may not reduce the price lower than ten percent (10%) of the purchase price from the wholesaler. During the 30 day liquidation period, a package store may not make any additional orders from wholesalers of any alcoholic beverage product that is sold below cost pursuant to these provisions. Calculation Example: If the per bottle price of a spirit on the wholesaler invoice is $10.00, the minimum price the retail package store may advertise or sell the bottle of that spirit during a final liquidation sale is $1.00 ($10.00 x 0.1 = $1.00). A retail package store may sell low gravity beer below cost.
A: Any wholesaler employee who solicits orders for alcoholic beverages or beer must obtain a wholesaler representative permit from the TABC. "Solicit" means the exchanging of consideration (value), or the promise to pay, for goods or services.
Yes. Even though state law prohibits a wholesaler from providing services related to wine to a retail food store, state law does not prohibit a wholesaler from providing services related to beer to a retail food store. This means that a wholesaler could, for example, stock beer at a retail food store to which the same wholesaler also delivers wine, subject to local ordinances or federal law. The wholesaler could not do the same with the wine that it delivers to the retail food store. See TABC Rule 0100-11-.07(2), (3).
A: A winery is prohibited from selling distilled spirits, or beer. A winery is also prohibited from selling more than five (5) cases or sixty (60) liters of bottled wine to any single retail customer in one (1) day.
However, if the winery wishes to also sell or serve other alcoholic beverages, such as spirits or high gravity beer, then the winery must obtain a separate and distinct restaurant license. Any winery that applies for a restaurant license must meet all eligibility requirements for such a license.
A: A TABC-issued server permit authorizes an individual to serve alcoholic beverages or beer at an establishment that holds an on-premise consumption license. Anyone who wishes to serve or sell alcoholic beverages or beer for on-premise consumption at a TABC-licensed establishment must obtain a server permit. Once issued, a server permit is valid for five (5) years. Server permits are not transferable to other individuals.
2. Complete a program of alcohol awareness training for persons involved in the direct service of alcohol, wine or beer by an entity certified by the commission to have an adequate training curriculum for alcohol awareness. The training program must be at least three and one half (3.5) hours long. The certificate indicating successful completion of the program is not a TABC server permit.
A: A festival license may be issued to a for-profit business or a third party with whom such business contracts to operate a festival in which alcoholic beverages or beer will be sold, given away, or otherwise dispensed.
A: Yes. Individuals selling, serving, or dispensing alcoholic beverages or beer must be adequately trained and supervised in the service of alcoholic beverages and beer and on the applicable laws regarding such service. All servers must have on their person either proof of completion of a TABC approved training course or a valid TABC server permit card.
A: Alcoholic beverages and beer may only be sold, dispensed, or consumed within hours sufficient to ensure adequate public health, safety, and welfare as determined by the commission and/or local beer board, as applicable.
A: A festival operator must obtain the alcoholic beverages and beer to be sold or dispensed only from a licensed Tennessee wholesaler. A festival operator may not receive, store, sell, or otherwise dispense donated alcoholic beverages or beer. A festival operator may not purchase or obtain alcoholic beverages or beer from a retail package store or any other licensee besides a wholesaler.
Individual states remain free to restrict or prohibit the manufacture of beer, mead, hard cider, wine, and other fermented alcoholic beverages at home. Homebrewing beer became legal in all 50 states in 2013 as the governors of Mississippi and Alabama both signed bills legalizing homebrewing that year. The Alabama bill went into effect on May 9, and the Mississippi bill went into effect on July 1. Most states allow brewing 100 US gallons (380 L) of beer per adult per year and up to a maximum of 200 US gallons (760 L) per household annually when there are two or more adults residing in the household. Because alcohol is taxed by the federal government via excise taxes, homebrewers are prohibited from selling any beer they brew. This similarly applies in most Western countries. In 1979, President Jimmy Carter signed into law a bill allowing home beers, which was at the time not permitted without paying the excise taxes as a holdover from the prohibition of alcoholic beverages (repealed in 1933). This change also exempted home brewers from posting a "penal bond" (which is currently $1000.00). 041b061a72
