Subpart 1, Chapter 1 (Beer)

100

The Commissioner and Chairman of the State Tax Commission having received numerous complaints from the enforcement branch of the Alcoholic Beverage Control Division, members of the State Highway Patrol and other law enforcement personnel, that there presently exists in the State the widespread practice of transporting beer from counties wherein said beer is legal into counties where beer is not legal, and the making of sales thereof in such "dry" areas; that the Commissioner feels it is necessary and expedient at this time to enact regulations concerning the transportation of beer through "dry" counties and between counties wherein the sale and possession thereof is legal. In furtherance of the aforesaid purpose, the commissioner does hereby enact, promulgate and adopt the following rules and regulations:
1. Beer shall not be transported through any county in this State which forbids the sale of beer unless by common carrier or unless its transportation is in closed trucks of wholesale beer dealers, the aforesaid trucks carrying the name of the wholesale dealer in large letters on the side of the truck so that it might be easily legible to persons traveling along the highway.
2. All transportation of beer between counties within this State must be accompanied by a bill of lading or an invoice stating the name of the consignor and consignee, the date and time of departure, route to be taken in transit and showing the destination to be into a county or municipality that legally authorizes the sale of beer; or which is accompanied by a load out sheet stating the name of the consignor and that the beer is to be delivered to retailers in a county or municipality which authorizes the sale of beer, the date and time of departure and the route to be taken in transit.
3. Any permittee found in violation of this regulation shall, upon due notice and hearing, have his permit cancelled.
4. Exceptions to this rule may be made upon written authority of the Commissioner permitting the transportation of beer between counties in unusual and necessitous situations.
