Beer Donation Information
Please Note: To Donate Beer or conduct a Beer Tasting at a ticketed event in Minnesota all brewery manufacturers like us must require the donation requester to provide proof of a 340A.404 SUBD. 10 TEMP ON-SALE LICENSE (https://www.revisor.mn.gov/statutes/cite/340A.404#stat.340A.404.10) from the governing municipality no matter if the venue of the event already has a current liquor &/or catering license AND no matter if you are a non-profit with a year round liquor license already in place. This allows us to donate to the non-profits who can secure this type of license without providing a prohibited “Thing of Value” to a for or non-profit retail account (340A.308 PROHIBITED TRANSACTIONS (https://www.revisor.mn.gov/statutes/cite/340A.308).
Please read here for more information about complying so as not to put alcohol manufacturers, the venue, and your non-profit at risk of conducting an illegal tasting: 340A.418 ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGE TASTINGS (https://www.revisor.mn.gov/statutes/cite/340A.418).
