2018 Code of Alabama
Title 28 - INTOXICATING LIQUOR, MALT BEVERAGES AND WINE.
Chapter 4A - ALABAMA BREWPUB ACT.
Section 28-4A-4 - Privilege and excise taxes levied on brewpub; recordkeeping; wholesaler designee; exemption from Sections 28-9-3 through 28-9-11.
(a) In addition to the licenses provided for by this chapter and any county or municipal license, there is levied on the brewpub for on-premises sales of beer brewed by the brewpub licensee the privilege or excise taxes imposed by Sections 28-3-184 and 28-3-190. Every brewpub licensee shall file the tax returns, pay the taxes and perform all obligations imposed on wholesalers at the times and places set forth therein. It shall be unlawful for any brewpub licensee who is required to pay the taxes so imposed in the first instance to fail or refuse to add to the sales price and collect from the purchaser the required amount of tax, it being the intent and purpose of this provision that each of the taxes levied is in fact a tax on the consumer, with the brewpub licensee who pays the tax in the first instance acting merely as an agent of the state for the collection and payment of the tax levied by Section 28-3-184 and as an agent of the county or municipality for the collection and payment of the tax levied by Section 28-3-190.
(b) The brewpub shall be required to keep and maintain all of the records otherwise required to be kept and maintained by manufacturer, wholesaler, and retailer licensees.
(c) The brewpub shall appoint a licensed wholesaler designee in order to preserve Section 28-9-1. In addition, for on-premises sales of beer brewed by the brewpub licensee, the brewpub shall be exempt from Sections 28-9-3 through 28-9-11.(Acts 1992, No. 92-535, p. 1078, §4; Act 2011-630, p. 1488, §2.)
