Alcohol Policy

Beer and other alcoholic beverages are only allowed by sellers/vendors/suppliers/brewers who hold a valid liquor license, which is displayed in the listing. Buyers must be over 18 years of age.

Beer and other alcoholic beverages may be sold on onlycraftbeer.com.au. However, there are different state laws on trading alcohol and it is up to the seller/vendor/supplier/brewer to ensure that they are meeting all legal requirements, including holding the correct liquor licenses.

Listings and products must also comply with the Alcohol Beverages Advertising Code (ABAC).

Various states have different laws regarding trading beer and alcohol. Make sure you (as vendor/supplier/brewer/seller) know your state's laws and if (and where) you are allowed to sell and/or purchase alcohol.

Activity that doesn't follow our alcohol policy could result in a range of actions including for example: administratively ending or cancelling listings, hiding or demoting all listings from search results, selling restrictions, and account suspension. All fees paid or payable in relation to listings or accounts on which we take any action will not be refunded or otherwise credited to your account.

This policy helps you follow important federal and state regulations.
