Director of the ABC Board wants to prohibit activities at Breweries and Tasting Rooms

FAIRBANKS, Alaska - The Alcoholic Beverage Control Board may be changing the way tasting rooms operate by disallowing activities like fundraisers, yodeling competitions, and even food at local breweries and distilleries.
In a memorandum to be discussed during the November 13th ABC Board Meeting, Director Erika McConnell hopes the board agrees to change the way Brewery, Winery and Distillery Licensed premises operate.
The memo states that the board is seeing activities at establishments both before and after the permitted hours of operation, as well as practices that seem contrary to the intent of the license.
Some examples of this include festivals, parties, renting out the facilities for weddings, poetry readings, yoga classes, and the sale of local crafts onsite
McConnell's memo states that the board should consider prohibiting these activities.
