Description

As of January 1, 2019, fermented malt beverages and malt liquors
are defined similarly for purposes of the Colorado Beer Code (beer
code) and the Colorado Liquor Code (liquor code). However, a person

who manufacturers, sells at wholesale, or imports both fermented malt
beverages and malt liquor must obtain a separate license under each code.
The bill removes the dual licensing requirement by:
  • Converting each manufacturer's license issued under the
beer code to a manufacturer's license issued under the
liquor code;
  • Converting each wholesaler's license issued under the beer
code to a wholesaler's beer license issued under the liquor
code;
  • Converting each nonresident manufacturer's license issued
under the beer code to a nonresident manufacturer's license
issued under the liquor code;
  • Converting each importer's license issued under the beer
code to a malt liquor importer's license issued under the
liquor code; and
  • Repealing the authority of the state licensing authority to
issue new licenses under the beer code, except for licenses
authorizing the retail sale of fermented malt beverages.
