   33.  A person engaged in the wholesaling of beer or wine
4may sell only disposable glassware, which is constructed of
5paper, paper laminated, or plastic materials and designed
6primarily for personal consumption on a one-time usage
7basis, to retailers for use within the premises of licensed
8establishments, for an amount which is greater than or equal
9to an amount which represents the greater of either the amount
10paid for the disposable glassware by the supplier or the amount
11paid for the disposable glassware by the wholesaler. Also,
12notwithstanding any other provision of this chapter or the fact
13that a person is the holder of a class “A” beer permit, a native
14brewery may be granted not more than two class “C” retail
15alcohol licenses or not more than two special class “C” retail
16alcohol licenses, both
as defined in section 123.30, regardless
17of whether that person is also a manufacturer of native
18distilled spirits pursuant to a class “A” native distilled
19spirits license or a manufacturer of native wine pursuant to a
20class “A” wine permit.
21   Sec. 2.  Section 123.130, subsection 2, Code 2023, is amended
22to read as follows:
   232.  Pursuant to section 123.45, subsection 3, a native
24brewery may be granted not more than two class “C” retail
25alcohol licenses or not more than two special class “C” retail
26alcohol licenses
28The inclusion of this explanation does not constitute agreement with
29the explanation’s substance by the members of the general assembly.
   30This bill provides that a native brewery may be granted up
31to two special class “C” retail alcohol licenses. Current law
32provides that a native brewery may only be granted up to two
33class “C” retail alcohol licenses. A special class “C” retail
34alcohol license allows the holder to purchase and sell wine and
35beer while a class “C” retail alcohol license authorizes the
-1-1holder to purchase and sell alcoholic liquor, wine, and beer.
