Yes. Licensed small farm wineries, microbreweries, and distilleries have mobile privileges with their license types that allow them to sell their products at "fairs, festivals, or other similar events." KRS 243.155
, KRS 243.157
, KRS 243.0305
. No additional license is required.
Small farm wineries, microbreweries, and distilleries each have different limitations on what they can sell, however. Small farm wineries are permitted to sell, by the drink or by the package, wine they produce or wine produced by another licensed small farm winery. KRS 243.155(2)(e)
. Microbreweries are unlimited in how much malt beverages they produced on their premises that they may sell by the drink, but are limited to selling one case of packaged malt beverages they produced at their premises per consumer. KRS 243.157(1)(e)
. Distilleries may only sell distilled spirits they produce or bottle by the drink—not by the package—but are not limited in how much they may sell in that way. KRS 243.0305(9)
Because of the similarity of language used with the special temporary drink license statute (KRS 243.260
), the Department interprets "other similar events" to mean any civic or charitable event which qualifies for a special temporary drink license under 804 KAR 4:250. This does not mean that someone must apply for a special temporary drink license; only that the event would qualify for one if an application was made.
As such, a licensed small farm winery, microbrewery and distillery are permitted to participate at "fairs, festivals and similar types of events" even if held at a retail licensed premises. KRS 243.0305(9)
(distillery), KRS 243.157(1)(e)
(microbrewery), and KRS 243.155(2)(e)
(small farm winery).
