Wisconsin Alcohol Law – Corkage Fees

Corkage Fees: Wisconsin alcohol beverage law does not allow “corkage fees” – fees charged by restaurant owners to allow patrons to carry in their own alcohol beverages to be consumed on the premises.

If the restaurant does have an alcohol beverage license, the only alcohol beverages allowed on the premises are those which the retailer has purchased from a licensed Wisconsin wholesaler; the retailer is required to have invoices from the wholesaler showing what product the retailer has purchased from the wholesaler.

If the restaurant does not have an alcohol beverage license, allowing consumption of alcohol beverages is prohibited and the restaurant owner can be charged for allowing its illegal consumption.
