TABC has updated its guidance on alcoholic beverage delivery.
MFH’s read of TABC’s statement is that holders of a Mixed Beverage Permit without a Food and Beverage Certificate that (1) have permanent food services capabilities at the premises and (2) have been forced to end dine-in services by a governmental entity due to coronavirus may deliver alcoholic beverages with food made on the premises and may also sell alcoholic beverages for carry-out with food made on the premises.
Nothing has changed with respect to alcoholic beverage deliveries by holders of a Mixed Beverage Permit with a Food and Beverage Certificate. That continues to be allowed as authorized by SB 1450 without regard to forced closure of dine-in services. In addition, such permittees may sell alcoholic beverages for carry-out with food made on the premises.
