    Draft beer on tap at 7-11: that didn't last long



    Draft beer barred at convenience stores

    October 11, 2017

    SELLING draft beer via dispensing machines at convenience stores is a violation of the Alcohol Control Act 2008, the Public Health Ministryís sub-committee ruled yesterday.

    Such beer sales violated the actís Section 30(1) that prohibited alcohol beverage sale via automate dispensers and also violated Section 32 that banned alcohol advertising because the dispenser also visibly carried the logo and brand of an alcohol beverage, said the sub-committee spokesman Dr Boonyoo Khorpornprsert.

    The former offence is punishable by up to one year in prison and/or up to Bt20,000 in fines, while the latter is punishable by up to one year in prison and/or up to Bt500,000 in fines. His comment followed the sub-panel meeting to consider whether this method of beer sales represented an infringement of the law, and to issue clear directives to all those stores selling beer.

    Next, the sub-panel would ask the Alcohol Control Committee to proceed with legal actions against each of the 7-Eleven convenience stores that had sold draft beer via this method on a pilot basis, despite the owner CP Allís previous announcement it would stop such a service, Boonyoo said. He said this resolution was only about the 7-Eleven stores, not about other companiesí stores that had not yet been inspected.

    Just hours earlier, CP All announced that it would stop selling draft beer via dispensing machines at its 7-Eleven convenience stores following opposition by anti-alcohol protesters. The pilot project had been launched at 18 7-Eleven branches earlier this month.

    The company said it had cancelled the trial due to concerns being raised by many sectors in society.

    7-ELEVEN PULLS DRAFT BEER AFTER PROTEST

    Cups wonít be running over with draft beer at 7-Eleven stores, after all.

    Less than a week after a trial of of draft beer machines debuted, 7-Eleven announced Friday it suspended the service nationwide following protests by anti-alcohol protesters.

    Word that Leo draft beer machines had appeared in some 7-Eleven stores spread on social media this week, prompting health officials to inspect a store in Bangkokís Chinatown on Tuesday. They ruled the company did not break any of the nationís strict alcohol laws and gave them the okay to operate with some restrictions.

    Despite the greenlight, Dhanudeth said the draft beer service was suspended in all pilot 18 stores after the visit.
