Frequently Asked Questions

How is the private contractor, LB&B Associates paid?

The purchaser of spirituous liquor pays the contractor’s fee indirectly. The State Warehouse operates under a bailment system in which the ownership of the product remains with the distillery until it is delivered to the local ABC boards at which time they have 30 days to pay for the product. The fee, called a "bailment fee," (currently $1.10 per case) is added to the price of liquor to pay for the warehousing and delivery to the local ABC boards.
