ABC Resources for Retailers Preparing for Beer Sales Change April 1

21 Jan 2019 3:39 PM | Anonymous

Retailers are preparing for change on April 1 2019, when the laws regulating the sale of strong beer in Kansas will change.  CMB retailers will be able to sell beer up to 6.0% ABV and liquor retailers will be able to offer other products besides alcoholic liquor. Depending on your perspective, this change may be welcome, or you may be dreading the experience.  Many retailers are making changes to ease the transition and hope to carve out a new space in the retail market.

KABR hosted its annual conference in October, featuring education regarding the upcoming changes to Kansas beer sales and strategies for retailers.  Since then, AB Inbev and Coors/Miller have hosted retailer gatherings to share information about the transition and what to expect.  Debbi Beavers, Director of the Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control, participated in these events and shared the presentation linked below to help retailers navigate the changing rules.  The information has been updated as new questions have come forward.

Remember, KABR is in regular contact with the Director and others in the industry.  If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will do our best to get what you need.
