The Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board (LCB) is considering amending WAC 314-17-015 as necessary to allow Class 13 Mandatory Alcohol Server Training (MAST) permit holders, in areas not restricted to minors, to open and pour beer and wine from bottles or cans, away from the table in the same manner they are permitted to do so at the table. The Washington Wine Institute is engaged in the rulemaking process after submitting a petition in November 2022 to amend 314-17-015.
In conjunction with this rulemaking, the LCB is also considering creating new rule sections in Title 314 WAC as necessary to implement SSB 5448, chapter 279, Laws of 2023. SSB 5448 currently allows wine delivery and takeout privileges.
The LCB encourages your input about this rulemaking. Please send your comments to the LCB through mail, email, or fax by August 21, 2023. Proposed rules are anticipated to be filed on or after September 12, 2023, following collaborative rule development.
