JohninWV Posted August 16, 2010 Share Posted August 16, 2010 I want to get the laws changed here in WV to allow for on site "liquor by the drink". We feel fortunate that WV allows for on-site retail sales by the bottle and tastings (1.5 ounces per person per day). Currently, distillery owners are not allowed to own any interest in a private liquor establishment (bar). We built a very nice place and we are getting lots of requests to hold private functions. We did a function last night, and served drinks, but we limited it to .75 ounces, two drink limit per person....it was a friend and so we didn't charge...and couldn't if we would have wanted to since samples have to be complimentary. I think there's a huge potential for making money that we are missing. I'm curious as to which states allow this and the statutes if you have them. I've never worked with my legislators before so I'm a bit unsure where to start. I'm wondering if it might be best to try to change the law to allow for dual licenses or if there's another way to work this. Any help is appreciated.
