The State of Tennessee Alcoholic Beverage Commission is responsible for licensing and has regulatory authority pertaining to alcoholic beverages. The commission has oversight of alcohol manufacturers, distillers, warehousemen, dealers, sales, mixing, taxes, wholesaler, and the transportation of beer and other alcoholic beverages. The Tennessee Code Annotated Section 57-1-102 thru 57-5-407 defines alcoholic beverages and beer tax requirements. Beer Wholesalers that sell beer to retailers or distribute beer that is directly from a brewery or brewery satellite location are required to be bonded.
The premium that you pay for a Tennessee Beer Wholesaler Surety Bond is dependent on the bond amount required.
Wholesale beer tax in Tennessee is not applicable to any beer and/or ale sold to any military base commissary and/or other armed forces properties of the United States.
