Craft Beer sales at promotional events allowed from 1st September 2016

The long awaited endorsement on the Queensland Producer/Wholesaler Liquor Licence to sell or supply your craft beer at promotional events, such as food and wine festivals is available.

Subject to conditions, this endorsement could allow you to:

  • sell your craft beer for consumption away from the promotional event (take-away sales) and/or
  • supply your craft beer for consumption at the promotional event, free-of-charge for sampling purposes only.

To be eligible you cannot: 

  • have more than one producer/wholesaler licence that has been issued under the Liquor Act 1992 or an equivalent licence issued by another state. This includes any licence held by a licensee related to the entity.
  • produce more than 5 million litres of craft beer in any financial year.

Further details on how to apply for a craft beer producer endorsement or a craft beer producer permit (interstate), including the application forms, are available online.
