Guidance on Executive Order D 2020 011 Temporary Suspension of Enforcement on On-Premise Retailed Licensees and Breweries to Sell, Deliver or Provide Alcohol for Takeout (Effective March 20th, 2020)

On March 20th, 2020 Governor Polis signed an executive order allowing Colorado Hotel & Restaurants, Beer & Wine, Brew Pubs, Club Licenses, Distillery Pubs, Lodging & Entertainment, Tavern and Vintners Restaurants to sell liquor for off premises-consumption along with food sales.

The summary of compliance with the order is as follows:
1. Sell alcohol with the sale of food
2. Receive orders via online, in person, telephonically, or third party vendor
3. Do not violate delivery requirements already established
4. Person making the deliveries must be over the age of 21 and an employee
5. Deliver and verify age to a person over 21 years old
6. This temporary amendment ends April 18th, 2020

Be sure to follow all regulations cited. If you are a restaurant or other on-premises license holder, only sell sealed alcoholic drinks with food and be sure that the receipts reflect those sales. Distilleries, Breweries, and other license holders with the right to sell to-go products can continue to do so under the standard rules.
