AN ACT TO AMEND THE CODE OF LAWS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, 1976, BY ADDING SECTION 61-9-170 SO AS TO AUTHORIZE THE HOLDER OF A RETAIL PERMIT TO SELL BEER AND WINE TO TRANSFER BEER AND WINE TO OTHER BUSINESSES, TO REQUIRE THE TRANSFEREE BUSINESSES TO HOLD A RETAIL BEER AND WINE PERMIT ISSUED TO THE SAME INDIVIDUAL, PARTNERSHIP, OR CORPORATION AS THE LICENSE OF THE TRANSFEROR BUSINESS, TO REQUIRE TRANSFER OF BEERS TO CONFORM TO TERRITORIAL RESTRICTIONS, TO MAKE IT UNLAWFUL TO TRANSFER BEER OR WINE EXCEPT AS PROVIDED IN THIS SECTION, TO MAKE IT UNLAWFUL FOR A RETAILER TO PURCHASE BEER OR WINE FROM ANOTHER RETAILER FOR RESALE, TO PROVIDE A PENALTY, AND TO REPEAL SECTION 61-9-180 RELATING TO THE TRANSFER OF BEER AND WINE.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
SECTION 1. Article 1, Chapter 9, Title 61 of the 1976 Code is amended by adding:
"Section 61-9-170. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, a holder of a retail permit to sell beer and wine may transfer beer and wine to other businesses. For this transfer to be lawful, all businesses involved in the transfer must hold a retail beer and wine permit issued to the same individual, partnership, or corporation. In addition, a particular brand of beer may be transferred only between retail outlets located within the territorial restrictions described in the distribution agreement between the brewery and the wholesaler on file with the commission pursuant to Section 61-9-1100. Transfers of beer and wine between retail beer and wine locations in a manner not authorized by this section, purchase of beer or wine by a retailer from another retailer for the purpose of resale, and sale of beer or wine by a retailer to a retailer for the purpose of resale are unlawful. A person violating the provisions of this section is guilty of a misdemeanor and, upon conviction, must be fined not more than two hundred dollars."
SECTION 2. Section 61-9-180 of the 1976 Code is repealed.
SECTION 3. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
Approved the 2nd day of June, 1992.
