ABC Board Overhauls Alcoholic Beverage Warning Sign
The Alcoholic Beverage Control Board issued on August 28, 2013 a new alcoholic beverage warning sign. The new warning sign must be posted by licensees at their establishments in a conspicuous place no later than Wednesday, November 27, 2013. The new sign provides several benefits to the public and licensees. Specifically, it allows the Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration (ABRA) to address several warnings and requirements for consuming alcoholic beverages in one sign thereby reducing the number of signs an establishment is required to have posted.
Licensees can pick up the new warning sign at ABRA, which is located at 2000 14th Street, NW, Suite 400 South, Washington, D.C. 20009. ABRA is open to the public between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. The sign will be available with ABRA’s Front Desk team and the licensee or its representative will be required to fill out a form acknowledging receipt. ABRA will also be delivering the new warning signs to licensees that choose not to pick up the new sign at ABRA.
A licensee’s failure to post the warning sign in a conspicuous place by the November 27, 2013 deadline may result in the issuance of a fine.
