In a Board of License Commissioners – Emergency Session on April 20th the Howard County Council removed the 12 ounce restriction noted in the article “Should the Howard County Council consider adjusting the mixed drink carryout and delivery limits during the Coronavirus outbreak?” Here is the big change made on April 20th:

Was: 5. Alcoholic Beverages shall be in containers that are sealed at the place of manufacture or in refillable containers sealed by the licensee. A Class D licensee or Class B licensee may not sell liquor except as an ingredient in a mixed drink delivered in a sealed container that does not exceed 12 ounces;

Now: 5. Alcoholic Beverages shall be in containers that are sealed at the place of manufacture or in refillable containers sealed by the licensee

See the big change…no more limitations on the 12 ounce limits. There were other tweaks to the resolution (items 8, 9 and 10). Read the full updated resolution here:  https://cc.howardcountymd.gov/LinkClick.aspx?fileticket=rwe2hPB06D4%3d&tabid=146&portalid=0

Glad to the the County Council address this issue and make this correction. Good job to all.

  1. A whole lot of booze and respiration is no good combination. I mean, if you gotta go out, better in a blurry haze, but still…think social distance prevention is better.
    Just my 2cents… stay safe Scottie n e’ry body…PEACE!
