The Non-Profit Liquor Festival Permit (NP-LFP) is a $100 permit issued by the state to a non-profit organization to host a 1-3 day distillery festival with a primary focus on local spirits. The permit allows:
- The non-profit to purchase spirits at wholesale (from wholesalers and distilleries that hold wholesale licenses) for consumption on the premises of the event, and for purchase to go;
- The non-profit must provide space for distilleries that hold an OSP to participate.
Distilleries holding an OSP may participate in the event and may sell their own spirits for off-premise consumption, provide (for free or for a fee) not more than four, 1/4-oz samples and serve those samples in the form of a mixed drink using its spirits and non-alcoholic ingredients. The distillery must report its attendance to the Comptroller in advance of the event (form available on member site). The NP must report which distilleries are attending no later than 30 days prior to the event. The NP must have individuals on-site who hold alcohol awareness certifications. The distilleries must report their participation in the event by the 20th of the month prior to the event.
