Substitution of Brand




Substitution of brand without the consent of the consumer is prohibited. An agent, servant or employee commits an offense if he/she substitutes one brand of alcoholic beverage for a brand that had been specifically requested by a consumer, unless the consumer is notified and consents to the substitution.

A permittee who violates this section of the Code is also liable in a civil suit to a consumer for damages resulting from the substitution and for attorney's fee and cost of action.


No holder of a mixed beverage permit (MB) may refill with any substance a container which contained distilled spirits.
