4.

Section fifty-four of this chapter shall control so far as applicable the procedure in connection with such application.

5.

Such restaurant-brewer license shall in form and in substance be a license to the person specifically licensed to operate a restaurant and sell liquor at retail to be consumed on the premises specifically licensed. Such license shall also be deemed to include a license to:

(a)

sell wine and beer at retail to be consumed under the same terms and conditions, without the payment of any additional fee; and

(b)

sell beer brewed on the premises to other retail licensees, where such license is held by the same person holding the restaurant-brewer license, or to commonly owned affiliate licenses, provided that such beer is sold through a New York state licensed beer wholesaler.

Such an application shall be granted by the authority except for good cause shown. The granting of such an application shall constitute conversion of said license into a restaurant-brewer license subject to the provisions of this chapter applicable to restaurant-brewers licenses issued under this section.

10.

(a) For purposes of sections one hundred one and one hundred six of this chapter, a person licensed under this section shall be deemed a "retailer" as that term is defined within section three of this chapter. Notwithstanding any provision of this chapter to the contrary, a person licensed under this section may also be licensed (or interested directly or indirectly in a license) to sell liquor at retail to be consumed on or off the premises under section fifty-four, fifty-four-a, fifty-five, fifty-five-a, seventy-nine or eighty-one of this chapter or sections sixty-four, sixty-four-a, sixty-four-b and sixty-four-d of this article.

(b)

No manufacturer or wholesaler of alcoholic beverages may be granted a license to operate a restaurant-brewer pursuant to this section.

(b)

Within the context of this subdivision, the word "entrance" shall mean a door of a school, of a house of worship, or premises licensed and operating pursuant to this section and sections sixty-four, sixty-four-a, sixty-four-b and/or sixty-four-d of this article or of the premises sought to be licensed, regularly used to give ingress to students of the school, to the general public attending the place of worship, and to patrons or guests of the premises licensed and operating pursuant to this section and sections sixty-four, sixty-four-a, sixty-four-b and/or sixty-four-d of this article or of the premises sought to be licensed, except that where a school or house of worship or premises licensed and operating pursuant to this section and sections sixty-four, sixty-four-a, sixty-four-b and/or sixty-four-d of this article is set back from a public thoroughfare, the walkway or stairs leading to any such door shall be deemed an entrance; and the measurement shall be taken to the center of the walkway or stairs at the point where it meets the building line or public thoroughfare. A door which has no exterior hardware, or which is used solely as an emergency or fire exit, or for maintenance purposes, or which leads directly to a part of a building not regularly used by the general public or patrons, is not deemed an "entrance".

(c)

Notwithstanding the provisions of subparagraph (ii) of paragraph (a) of this subdivision, the authority may issue a license pursuant to this section for a premises which shall be within five hundred feet of three or more existing premises licensed and operating pursuant to this section and sections sixty-four, sixty-four-a, sixty-four-b and/or sixty-four-d of this article if, after consultation with the municipality or community board, it determines that granting such license would be in the public interest. Before it may issue any such license, the authority shall conduct a hearing, upon notice to the applicant and the municipality or community board, and shall state and file in its office its reasons therefor. The hearing may be rescheduled, adjourned or continued, and the authority shall give notice to the applicant and the municipality or community board of any such rescheduled, adjourned or continued hearing. Before the authority issues any said license, the authority or one or more of the commissioners thereof may, in addition to the hearing required by this paragraph, also conduct a public meeting regarding said license, upon notice to the applicant and the municipality or community board. The public meeting may be rescheduled, adjourned or continued, and the authority shall give notice to the applicant and the municipality or community board of any such rescheduled, adjourned or continued public meeting. Notice to the municipality or community board shall mean written notice mailed by the authority to such municipality or community board at least fifteen days in advance of any hearing scheduled pursuant to this paragraph. Upon the request of the authority, any municipality or community board may waive the fifteen day notice requirement. No premises having been granted a license pursuant to this section shall be denied a renewal of such license upon the grounds that such premises are within five hundred feet of a building or buildings wherein three or more premises are operating and licensed pursuant to this section or sections sixty-four, sixty-four-a, sixty-four-b and/or sixty-four-d of this article.

(d)

Within the context of this subdivision, a building occupied as a place of worship does not cease to be "exclusively" occupied as a place of worship by incidental uses that are not of a nature to detract from the predominant character of the building as a place of worship, such uses which include, but which are not limited to: the conduct of legally authorized games of bingo or other games of chance held as a means of raising funds for the not-for-profit religious organization which conducts services at the place of worship or for other not-for-profit organizations or groups; use of the building for fund-raising performances by or benefitting the not-for-profit religious organization which conducts services at the place of worship or other not-for-profit organizations or groups; the use of the building by other religious organizations or groups for religious services or other purposes; the conduct of social activities by or for the benefit of the congregants; the use of the building for meetings held by organizations or groups providing bereavement counseling to persons having suffered the loss of a loved one, or providing advice or support for conditions or diseases including, but not limited to, alcoholism, drug addiction, cancer, cerebral palsy, Parkinsons disease, or Alzheimers disease; the use of the building for blood drives, health screenings, health information meetings, yoga classes, exercise classes or other activities intended to promote the health of the congregants or other persons; and use of the building by non-congregant members of the community for private social functions. The building occupied as a place of worship does not cease to be "exclusively" occupied as a place of worship where the not-for-profit religious organization occupying the place of worship accepts the payment of funds to defray costs related to another partys use of the building.

12.

The liquor authority may in its discretion and upon such terms and conditions as it may prescribe, issue to a licensed restaurant-brewer upon his application therefor a supplemental license authorizing the restaurant-brewer to sell beer brewed on the licensed premises at retail to a person for consumption in his home, at retail in bulk by the keg, cask or barrel for consumption and not for resale at a clambake, barbecue, picnic, outing or other similar outdoor gathering at which more than fifty persons are assembled and at wholesale.

No person, who holds multiple licenses under this section and applies for and receives multiple supplemental licenses, may sell, under those supplemental licenses, in the aggregate more than one thousand barrels of beer per year.

13.

For the exercise of the privilege granted by such supplemental license issued under subdivision twelve of this section there is assessed a fee to be paid by the licensee in the sum of eleven hundred twenty-five dollars per three-year period plus a one hundred dollar filing fee and which fee shall be in addition to the fee provided for in this section for a restaurant-brewer license.

14.

An application for a supplemental license under subdivision thirteen of this section shall be in such form and shall contain such information as shall be required by the liquor authority and shall be accompanied by a check or draft in the amount required by subdivision thirteen of this section.
