STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
Idaho Code 23-934A allows for the issuance of an alcohol
beverage-catering permit authorizing the permittee "to serve
and sell liquor by the drink, beer and wine, or beer, or wine,
at a party or convention, not to exceed three (3) consecutive
days." Alcohol Beverage Control (ABC) officials have found
that catering permits are being issued to liquor licensees to
cater events at premises licensed to sell beer and wine.
Essentially, this means a premise licensed to sell beer and
wine ONLY may sell liquor during the period of the catering
permit. The intent of the catering permit is to allow a
licensee to cater an event at a place other than a licensed
premise, and not as a device to extend the sale of liquor to
premises licensed for beer and wine. This proposal will
expressly prohibit catering events at premises currently
licensed to sell alcohol beverages.
Clarification of this section of Idaho Code should carry no
fiscal impact to state or local government.
