Compliance Advisory

Be advised, the Nebraska Liquor Control Commission and Nebraska State Patrol Enforcement Division has very strong reason to believe there exists in the wholesale/retail market place a business practice involving exclusion of competitors alcoholic beverage products. 

53-185. Contract to sell for only one manufacturer or wholesaler; void.
No manufacturer or wholesaler shall enter into any contract with any person licensed to sell at retail whereby such licensee agrees not to sell any alcoholic liquor manufactured or distributed by any other manufacturer or wholesaler.
Furthermore, it appears that the second tier is creating a purchase condition whereby in order to receive a quantity discount on certain premium brands of liquor, the retail licensee is held to sell well products only offered by that particular wholesaler, or other incentives such as free kegs of beer.

This type of business practice violates the regulations and leaves the door open for a likely citation accordingly.

Please be advised any entity holding a Wholesale Liquor or Wholesale Beer license that is engaged in retail sales programs that creates some type of exclusive factor is hereby ordered to cease and desist this type of activity.

There is hereby a grace period until February 28, 2014, to delete any wholesale demands within sales programs that reach towards exclusive contracts.  After February 28, 2014, active enforcement will take place by interviewing retail licensees and examining retail buying trends and inventory of well products.
