TLW Memo on Wedding Barns

January 22, 2019

Last week, two unlicensed wedding barns filed a lawsuit against the State of Wisconsin in an attempt to get a judge to rule that they can continue to ignore the Wisconsin law that requires their businesses to be licensed. The Tavern League of Wisconsin believes that this lawsuit will jeopardize all licensure and regulation of establishments that serve alcohol in Wisconsin.

Contrary to their claims, requiring Wedding barns and other venues to follow the law will not jeopardize their business, but is essential in treating all businesses equally under the law.
