Or. Admin. R. 845-013-0090 - Wholesale-Retail Relations: Non-Profit Temporary Sales Licenses

(1) ORS 471.400(1) permits the Commission to allow manufacturers and wholesalers to provide products and services to non-profit Temporary Sales licensees without violating financial assistance laws. These products and services are allowed in addition to the gratuities, point of sale material, items of nominal value and services of nominal value that OAR 845-013-0001 through 845-013-0070 allow.
(2) Federal Law May Differ. Although Oregon law allows manufacturers and wholesalers to provide the products and services described in this rule, federal laws regarding wine may not. When dealing with wine, a federal law that is more strict than an Oregon law takes precedence over the Oregon law. Therefore, manufacturers and wholesalers should check with the Federal Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau before applying this rule to their wine business.
(3) Products and Services. A manufacturer or wholesaler may provide the following to a non-profit Temporary Sales licensee:
(a) Any product the manufacturer or wholesaler normally sells. The manufacturer or wholesaler may give the product free, sell the product at a discount or sell the product at the regular price. The manufacturer or wholesaler may pick up excess malt beverage product at the end of a special event held by a non-profit Temporary Sales licensee, and if the product was sold to the Temporary Sales licensee, may give a credit or cash refund for the returned product;
(b) Any services to support the alcoholic beverage product. This includes providing employees to sell or serve alcoholic beverages at the Temporary Sales license event as long as the employee has successfully completed an approved alcohol server education course within the last five years or has a valid service permit; and
(c) Banners for interior or exterior display at the licensed premises that advertise a special event and prominently display the manufacturer's or wholesaler's alcoholic beverage brand name. These banners may be displayed before and during the Temporary Sales license event and may exceed 630 square inches.
(4) Limitations. A manufacturer or wholesaler may provide the products and services that this rule allows only if the Temporary Sales licensee is a non-profit or charitable organization that is registered with the state, a political committee that has a current statement of organization filed under ORS 260.039 or 260.042, an agency of the State, or a local government or an agency or department of a local government
(5) Equipment. ORS 471.400(1) also allows a manufacturer or wholesaler to provide the following equipment to any retail licensee: picnic pumps, cold plates, tubs, refrigerated trailers, refrigerated vans and refrigerated draft systems. The manufacturer or wholesaler may provide this equipment only for a period not to exceed 14 days or for a period that is reasonable for the equipment to be set up at or removed from the site of the special event and for a reasonable rental or service fee. The statute allows a manufacturer or wholesaler to provide this equipment to any retail licensee for a reasonable fee. A manufacturer or wholesaler does not have to require a reasonable fee when providing this equipment to a non-profit temporary sales licensee.
