NO Beer to Go
"Earlier this year, Georgia brewers won a small, loophole-type victory (the best kind, right?) when a law was passed allowing them to sell beer directly to customers who take brewery tours. The beer came as a “free souvenir” that beer attendees could take home, so as the brewers figured it, the price of the beer should be naturally worked into the price of the tour. [...]
On Sept. 25, the [Georgia] Department of Revenue [DoR] put a quick stop to this experiment. It issued a bulletin saying the tour prices couldn’t be based on the value of the beer, that tours only included a very limited amount of free beer at the end. [A Georgia brewery may give away up to 36 ounces of free malt beverage to each tour attendee in a calendar day in free tastings, and may give away up to 72 ounces of malt beverage in a calendar day as a free souvenir.]
Georgia is one of the few states left where it’s still illegal for drinkers to buy beer at the brewery for on-site consumption or to take home."
