Brewery-Public House License Privileges Expanded
Senate Bill 138 passed the Oregon Legislature earlier this year.
Effective January 1, 2016, an Oregon brewery-public house licensee (a “BPH”) is allowed to: (1) distribute malt beverages manufactured at the licensed premises to any other premises licensed to the same licensee, whether a manufacturer, wholesaler, or retail premises, and (2) distribute for export any amount of malt beverages manufactured at the licensed premises.
In any calendar year, a BPH may sell at wholesale and distribute to licensees no more than 7,500 barrels of malt beverages produced by the licensee. Currently, in any calendar year, a BPH may sell at wholesale to licensees malt beverages produced by the licensee if the licensee produced 5,000 barrels or less of malt beverages in the immediately preceding calendar year.
