Chapter 138 of the General Laws, as appearing in the 2014 Official Edition, is hereby amended by striking out the first paragraph in section 15F and inserting in place thereof the following paragraph:-
Section 15F. Notwithstanding any other provision of chapter 138, in any city or town wherein the granting of licenses to sell wine or distilled products is authorized under this chapter, the local licensing authority may issue to an applicant authorized to operate a farmer-winery under section 19B or a farmer-distillery under section 19E, a special license for the sale of products produced by or for the licensee in sealed containers for off-premise consumption at an indoor or outdoor agricultural event. All sales of such products shall be conducted by an agent, representative, or solicitor of the licensee to customers who are at least 21 years of age. A licensee under this section may provide, without charge, samples of such products to prospective customers at an indoor or outdoor agricultural event. All samples shall be served by an agent, representative, or solicitor of the licensee to individuals who are at least 21 years of age and all samples shall be consumed in the presence of such agent, representative, or solicitor of the licensee; provided, however, that no sample shall exceed 1 ounce of such products and no more than 5 samples shall be served to an individual prospective customer. For the purposes of this section, the term “agricultural event” shall be limited to those events certified by the department of agricultural resources as set forth in this section.
