The bill permits the Director of the Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control to issue a permit to the holder of a limited or restricted brewery license to sell beer at a community farm market. Under the bill, a permit to sell beer at a community farm market would be valid for one year from the date it is issued and may be renewed as long as the person to whom it was issued continues to hold a limited or restricted brewery license. The bill authorizes the director to impose a fee not to exceed $75 for the issuance or renewal of a permit. Persons holding a valid permit would be entitled to transport their beer for the purpose of selling it at a community farm market, but would not be able to sell it at a community farm market located in a municipality where the sale of alcoholic beverages has been prohibited. The bill defines a "community farm market" as two or more producers or farmers who assemble at a location used seasonally for the wholesale or retail marketing and sale of the agricultural output of a farm, and products that contribute to farm income, excluding roadside farm stands. Other states, such as California, Maryland, and Washington, allow certain breweries - namely, in-state microbreweries - to sell their beer at farm markets. These states issue annual permits for a fee of $50 to $100.
