Responsible Beverage Server & Seller Training (10 - 1 pm)

Maine’s busy tourist season is just around the corner, and many stores, restaurants, and taverns will be bringing on new staff. Healthy Acadia offers Responsible Beverage Server & Seller training to provide anyone who serves or sells alcoholic beverages with the knowledge they need to better identify and prevent violations of liquor laws. This course emphasizes increasing employees’ knowledge about liquor laws, the importance of preventing underage sales, and sales to visibly intoxicated individuals, as well as building the skills necessary to handle refusing service when necessary. Employees will receive training on best practices to identify minors, false identification, and signs of visible intoxication. Training employees through this 4-hour course may lead to reduced insurance rates for businesses and will help reduce the risk of making costly, and potentially tragic, unlawful sales of alcoholic beverages. The next Responsible Beverage Server & Seller training will be held on Tuesday, March 5, 2019, from 10:00am to 1:00pm, at Fogtown Brewing Company, 25 Pine Street, Ellsworth, ME, 04605.
