Beer & Wine Available For Delivery & Takeout In Montgomery County

In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, restaurants in Montgomery County, MD will now temporarily be allowed to offer beer and wine for takeout and delivery.

According to an article published by Bethesda Magazine, "The county’s liquor board Wednesday morning approved a change that will temporarily allow “on-premise” restaurants to sell beer and wine for “off premise” use."

Beer and wine may only be sold if food is also included with the purchase and the alcohol must remain in it's original container. Drafts may be sold in growlers and hard liquor remains prohibited.

According to Bethesda Magazine, "delivery orders that include beer and wine, restaurants will have to deliver the orders themselves and won’t be able to use delivery services such as DoorDash and Grubhub. State law prohibits delivery services from handling alcohol, according to Kathie Durbin, division chief, licensure, regulation and education at ABS, who spearheaded ABS’ efforts to allow off-premises sales."
