We have had a number of questions about the laws regarding the sale of alcohol for off premise consumption from taverns and restaurants. Below is the state law which does permit Class B licensee holders to sell alcohol for off premise consumption.
Wisconsin Carryout Laws
Along with the ability to sell beverages on-premise, your license also permits the sale of beer, wine and intoxicating spirits for off-premise consumption as long as you comply with the following restrictions:
- No off-premise sales between midnight and 6 AM. (Local governments have the ability to further restrict.)
- Beverages must be in original sealed containers
- No limit on quantity of beer or intoxicating liquor. (2019 Wisconsin Act 6 removed the 4 liter restriction on intoxicating liquor.)
- Sales must be face-to-face and must be made on licensed premise. Online sales and delivery is not allowed under current law.
