CITY OF BOSTON LICENSING BOARD APPROVES REGULATIONS TO ALLOW FOR BYOB

CITY OF BOSTON LICENSING BOARD APPROVES REGULATIONS TO ALLOW FOR BYOB



BOSTON – January 18, 2017 – Today, the City of Boston’s Licensing Board unanimously approved rules and regulations to allow for BYOB (bring your own bottle) in Boston.

Previous regulations prohibited patrons from bringing alcoholic beverages for their own consumption onto licensed premises. The new rules permit restaurants outside downtown neighborhoods with a capacity of 30 or less to apply for a BYOB license. Please see the attached regulations for details.

“Today’s vote brings us one big step closer to implementing BYOB in Boston,” said City Council President Michelle Wu. “Not only will BYOB give small business owners another tool to boost economic activity, but it will also provide consumers with more dining out options in our neighborhoods. The result will be a more vibrant restaurant scene across the whole city.”

In December 2015, the City Council passed and Mayor Martin J. Walsh signed an ordinance to allow for BYOB to be considered by the Licensing Board.
