Who maintains legal liability of product through delivery?

The holders of an ABC license are responsible for the alcoholic beverage until the ownership is transferred to another licensee. When selling directly to the consumer, the retailer and the producer maintain the liability through the transaction to the consumer. It doesn’t matter where that transition takes place (licensed premise versus delivery to doorstep).

What does Bevv do to support the vendor through the delivery process?

The concern on the vendors’ part is valid and the two things you don’t want to get popped for: 1. Selling to underage or heavily intoxicated individuals and 2. Tied-house regulation violations. 

Bevv takes these issues very seriously. In order to reduce vendors’ concerns regarding delivery, we are providing the stipulations/requisites of each of our delivery partners below. Please remember these parties have been delivering for the wine and retail industries for many years.
