Selling and Serving of Alcoholic Beverages

Posted By Neeley Carlson, Tuesday, March 14, 2017

The Kansas Alcohol Beverage Control (ABC), has a handbook for drinking establishments, which provides an overview of the Kansas liquor laws.  

 

 

Below is an overview on the regulations pertaining to the service of alcohol.

 

A DE may offer for sale, sell and serve alcoholic liquor for consumption on the licensed premises which may be open to the public, if the premises are located within a "wet county." [Subsection (a) of K.S.A. 41-2642]

 

A DE shall sell and serve alcoholic liquor only by the individual drink [subsection (h) of K.S.A 41- 2601], except that a DE may sell or serve:

  • Beer or CMB in a pitcher capable of containing not more than 64 fluid ounces. [Subsection (c)(4) of K.S.A. 41-2640]
  • Margarita, sangria, daiquiri, mojito or other mixed alcoholic beverages, as approved by the Director, in a pitcher containing not more than 64 fluid ounces. [Subsection (c)(6) of K.S.A. 41- 2640]

Alcoholic liquor shall be dispensed only from original containers, except that a DE or its agent or employee may dispense: 

  •  Alcoholic liquor from a machine or container used to mix alcoholic liquor with other liquids or solids intended for human consumption. [Subsection (a)(1) of K.S.A. 41-2658]
  • Alcoholic liquor from a machine or container used to chill alcoholic liquor, which may contain additional liquids or solids intended for human consumption. [Subsection (a)(2) of K.S.A. 41- 2658]
  • Infused alcoholic liquor from a container used to infuse alcoholic liquor with other substances intended for human consumption. [Subsection (a)(3) of K.S.A. 41-2658]

A DE or its agent or employee may infuse alcoholic liquor with spices, herbs, fruits, vegetables, candy or other substances intended for human consumption if no additional fermentation occurs during the process. [Subsection (c) of K.S.A. 41-2658]

 

A DE may offer customers wine from self-service, automated devices, as long as the licensee monitors and controls the dispensing. The director may adopt rules and regulations with regard to the operation of such devices. [Subsection (e) of K.S.A. 41-2640]
