LCB Approves Preproposal to Consider Permanent Serving Allowances for 18-20-year-olds

On March 15, the Liquor and Cannabis Board (LCB) approved a Preproposal Statement of Inquiry (CR 101) to consider allowing Class 13 MAST permit holders, in areas not restricted to minors, to open and pour wine and beer from bottles or cans away from the table. This would entail amending WAC 314-17-015 and repealing, amending and creating rule sections in Title 314 WAC, or both as necessary.

The Washington Wine Institute requested this rulemaking after the MAST 13 permit additional allowances expired when pandemic regulations for operations ended in September of 2022. Click the links below to learn more or to submit a public comment to the LCB by April 17.
