2015 mixed drinks in tasting room legislation!

3 posts in this topic

So one of our Facebook fans forwarded this to us this morning. If the bill passes we would be allowed to serve cocktails (made with non-alcoholic mixers) in our tasting rooms!

There are several different approaches in action to get this past right now. Jason will be filling everyone in at the meeting on 2/17. Glad to see they included everyone in part of this attempt.

This is not a true statement. The bill language would allow our same size samples to be mixed with non-alcoholic mixers to show customers what it tastes like. It is not the creation of a bar type offering. We are getting lots of push back from the Restaurant Association and some folks in the legislature who think this is a backdoor entree to cocktails. We should not be giving them ammo by going out there and saying "the cocktails are coming, the cocktails are coming". So, we should be reaching out to our legislators to encourage them to support the language that allows us to offer these types of samples, but let's not be discussing cocktails please.

The session is moving very fast in Olympia for folks who are interested in this and other topics should contact their members now.
