Fermented Malt Beverage And Malt Liquor License

Concerning the conversion of certain fermented malt beverage licenses issued under the "Colorado Beer Code" to malt liquor licenses issued under the "Colorado Liquor Code".
Session:
2019 Regular Session
Subject:
Liquor, Tobacco, & Marijuana
Bill Summary

As of January 1, 2019, fermented malt beverages and malt liquors are defined similarly for purposes of the "Colorado Beer Code" (beer code) and the "Colorado Liquor Code" (liquor code). However, a person who manufacturers, sells at wholesale, or imports both fermented malt beverages and malt liquor must obtain a separate license under each code. The bill removes the dual licensing requirement by:

  • Converting each manufacturer's license issued under the beer code to a manufacturer's license issued under the liquor code;
  • Converting each wholesaler's license issued under the beer code to a wholesaler's beer license issued under the liquor code;
  • Converting each nonresident manufacturer's license issued under the beer code to a nonresident manufacturer's license issued under the liquor code;
  • Converting each importer's license issued under the beer code to a malt liquor importer's license issued under the liquor code; and
  • Repealing the authority of the state licensing authority to issue new licenses under the beer code, except for licenses authorizing the retail sale of fermented malt beverages.
    (Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
