JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — Missouri is loosening some rules when it comes to curbside alcohol sales during the pandemic.
It’s temporarily waiving restrictions on sales of alcohol in containers other than the original packaging.
To-go alcoholic drinks are an effort to help businesses.
The Alcohol and Tobacco Control says the customer must also order a meal with their liquor purchase.
The change does not allow restaurants to sell mixed drinks in “to-go” plastic or styrofoam cups with straws or loose covers.
This rule will expire on May 15.
According to the Division of Alcohol and Tobacco Control, the container must meet these conditions:
- The alcohol container must be durable, leakproof, and sealable, and must meet the minimum size requirements outlined in the Code of State Regulations [11 CSR 70-2.010(5)];
- The customer must have ordered and purchased a meal simultaneous with the liquor purchase;
- The licensee must provide the customer with a dated receipt for the alcohol beverage(s); and
- The sealed alcohol container must either be:
- Placed in a one-time-use, tamperproof, transparent bag which must be securely sealed, or;
- o The container opening must be sealed with tamperproof tape.
