Labeling of kegs sold at retail for off-premise consumption, procedures.

311.082. 1. As used in this section, the following terms shall mean:

(1) "Keg", any container capable of holding four gallons or more of beer, wine, or intoxicating liquor and which is designed to dispense beer, wine, or intoxicating liquor directly from the container for purposes of consumption. Any nonreturnable container with a capacity of less than six gallons shall not be considered a keg under this section;

(2) "Supervisor of alcohol and tobacco control", the person appointed pursuant to section 311.610.

2. Each keg sold at retail for off-premise consumption shall be labeled with a numbered identification tag. The division of alcohol and tobacco control may prescribe the numbered identification tags to be used for this purpose. The recyclable numbered identification tag shall be affixed to the handle on the top chime of the keg. The recyclable numbered identification tag shall be supplied by the division of alcohol and tobacco control without fee and securely affixed to the keg by the licensee making the sale.

3. Each retail licensee shall require each keg purchaser to present valid identification and a minimum deposit of fifty dollars per keg at the time of purchase. On the identification form provided by the division of alcohol and tobacco control the licensee shall record for each keg sale the date of sale, the size of keg, keg tag identification number, the amount of container deposit, the name, address, and date of birth of the purchaser, and the form of identification presented by such purchaser. The purchaser shall sign a statement at the time of purchase attesting to the accuracy of the purchaser's name and address and acknowledging that misuse of the keg or its contents may result in civil liability, criminal prosecution, or both. The licensee shall retain the identification form for a minimum of three months following the sale of the keg.

4. The licensee shall not refund a deposit for a keg that is returned without the numbered identification tag intact and legible. The licensee shall record the date of return of the keg and the condition of the numbered identification tag on the identification form required pursuant to subsection 3 of this section. The licensee may retain any deposit not refunded for this reason. Upon the return of a properly tagged keg from a consumer, the licensee shall remove the tag from the keg and retain such tag with the identification form as required pursuant to subsection 3 of this section.

5. The supervisor shall promulgate rules and regulations for the administration of this section and shall design all necessary forms. No rule, regulation, or portion of a rule or regulation promulgated pursuant to the authority of this section shall become effective unless it has been promulgated pursuant to chapter 536.

6. The provisions of this section shall become effective on July 1, 2004.

7. This section shall fully preempt and supersede any ordinances, rules, or regulations made by any city, county, or other political subdivision of the state of Missouri which regulate the selling, labeling, or registering of kegs. This section shall not impose any new or additional civil or criminal liability upon the retail licensee.
