Distributors Allowed to Pick Up Expired Beer/Empties in Opened Regions

Mason Doerr  | Published on 5/21/2020


The MLBA, after discussion with the AG’s Office and Governor’s Office, has learned that under the current executive orders, distributors are now allowed to pick up expired beer and empty cans/bottles in the opened regions of the state (Regions 6 & 8). Distributors choosing to replace expired beer can provide licensees with a refund or credit for the product.

We are also happy to announce that golf courses are allowed to sell beer, wine and spirits for consumption in their clubhouses and on the golf course (everywhere licensed to sell) in those regions, as well.

Thank you.
