Can I bring my own bottle of wine to a restaurant?
Q. Can I bring my own bottle of wine to a restaurant and just be charged a "corkage fee" for serving?
A. No. All alcohol served at an on-premises licensed establishment must be purchased from that establishment. If the establishment does not hold a license, MCL 436.1913 clearly states that those establishments may not allow consumption of alcohol on the premises. Please direct specific questions to the MLCC Enforcement toll free line at 1-866-893-2121.
