Responsible Beer Vendor Program

A responsible beer vendor is a vendor that has received certification from the commission to sell beer for off-premise consumption that has met all the statutory and regulatory requirements set forth by the commission to encourage vendors to be prudent in their selling practices of beer, and to restrict or reduce the sanctions that may be imposed in the administrative proceedings by the local beer boards against the vendors who voluntarily comply.

Certification is valid for one (1) year and is renewable annually. For fees and forms, check the Public Information and Forms page.

You must be a person, corporation or entity that has been issued a permit to sell beer for off-premise consumption by a TN beer board.
