Section 1.

Minnesota Statutes 2013 Supplement, section 340A.301, subdivision 6b,
is amended to read:

Subd. 6b.

Brewer taproom license.

(a) A municipality, including a city with a
municipal liquor store, may issue the holder of a brewer's license under subdivision 6,
clause (c), (i), or (j), a brewer taproom license. A brewer taproom license authorizes on-sale
of malt liquor produced by the brewer for consumption on the premises of or adjacent
to one brewery location owned by the brewer. Nothing in this subdivision precludes the
holder of a brewer taproom license from also holding a license to operate a restaurant at
the brewery. Section 340A.409 shall apply to a license issued under this subdivision. All
provisions of this chapter that apply to a retail liquor license shall apply to a license issued
under this subdivision unless the provision is explicitly inconsistent with this subdivision.

(b) A brewer may only have one taproom license under this subdivision, and may
not have an ownership interest in a brewery licensed under subdivision 6, clause (d).

(c) A municipality may not issue a brewer taproom license to a brewer if the brewer
seeking the license, or any person having an economic interest in the brewer seeking the
license or exercising control over the brewer seeking the license, is a brewer that brews
more than 250,000 barrels of malt liquor annually or a winery that produces more than
250,000 gallons of wine annually.

(d) The municipality shall impose a licensing fee on a brewer holding a brewer
taproom license under this subdivision, subject to limitations applicable to license fees
under section 340A.408, subdivision 2, paragraph (a).

(e) A municipality shall, within ten days of the issuance of a license under this
subdivision, inform the commissioner of the licensee's name and address and trade name,
and the effective date and expiration date of the license. The municipality shall also
inform the commissioner of a license transfer, cancellation, suspension, or revocation
during the license period.

and 750 milliliter bottles on Sundays.
