New Alcohol Regulations Allow for Boozy Cupcakes, Give Festivals Liquor License Eligibility
New legislation that went into effect May 3 gives bakeries the opportunity to apply for a license allowing them to sell baked goods with up to 5-percent alcohol content. Infused pastries and sweets with alcohol content of between .5 and 5 percent can only be sold to individuals 21 years old or older.
The law is also changing the way distilleries and festival organizers provide alcoholic beverages to their customers.
Distilleries are now eligible for licenses that would allow them to curate drinks made with their own products and sell them onsite.
Festival organizers are now able to get a temporary liquor license lasting up to 15 days. This appears to be a significant improvement from the current model, which requires organizers to obtain a one-day permit for each day of a festival.
