Senate Bill 813

A new law allows certain service establishments, such as bridal shops and nail salons, to offer complimentary wine and strong beer for customers 21 and older: no more than two alcoholic beverages — 12-ounces of wine or 24 ounces of beer — per day to a guest.

OKLAHOMA CITY — A new law in effect today allows certain businesses to serve complimentary wine and beer on site to those 21 years old or older.

Senate Bill 813, by Sen. Stephanie Bice, R-Oklahoma City, puts the limit at two alcoholic beverages, 12 ounces of wine and 24 ounces of beer per day per guest.

Bice said the measure would allow nail salons and barber shops, among other businesses, to offer complimentary beverages.

She said the response has been fantastic.

“A lot of these service-based businesses have wanted this option for quite some time,” Bice said.
