Takeaway wine from restaurants to be made a permanent rule

Takeaway wine from restaurants to be made a permanent rule


Posted September 17, 2021
Liquor Licensing

The Queensland Government has announced the extension of a measure relating to the sale of alcohol introduced in response to COVID-19.

The government has announced they plan to make rules allowing restaurants to sell takeaway wines permanent.

Licensed restaurants that also offer on-premises dining will be allowed to sell takeaway or delivery wine, with a maximum limit of 1.5 litres of wine – or two bottles – sold with a meal between 10am and 10pm.

These rules are set to become permanent.

In order to comply the alcohol will only be allowed to be sold if accompanied by a “substantial meal”. They are excluding things like snacks and we will wait and see if any further clarification is provided on what constitutes a substantial meal. Is a large serve of chips a meal or a snack.

Since the alcohol can be supplied for both takeaway and delivery orders, businesses have to have procedures in place to ensure the identification of online customers to prevent alcohol from being sold to minors.

For restaurants with an existing liquor licence the fee for a permanent takeaway liquor license condition will be waived until June 30, 2022.

A great big thank you to Russell Green and all the guys at RG Strategic. The result you achieved for us with our complex town planning issue was exceptional. In obtaining the approvals for our restaurant refurbishment and outside area cover we will be in a position to be able to offer our patrons a much more comfortable dining experience. It was reassuring for us to have a town planning consultant with such a complete knowledge of the food/beverage and hospitality industries as well as a thorough understanding of all the technical aspects required to meet Noosa Council's strict approvals process. I would have no hesitation in recommending Russell and the team to anyone who requires planning or compliance services, particularly food premises in the Sunshine Coast or Noosa area. Once again thanks, Russell.
