The California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) strictly enforces the laws regarding alcohol consumption at special events, such as the Sea Otter Classic. The ABC uses a number of methods to prevent the problems associated with the unlawful purchase and consumption of alcoholic beverages by minors. These include the Minor Decoy Program, the Shoulder Tap Program, and Operation Trapdoor.
In accordance with our Monterey County Special Event Use Permit and insurance policy, only beer and wine are to be served at the Sea Otter Classic. For the safety and enjoyment of all who attend Sea Otter, the following rules must be observed:
- Beer and wine only. No other alcoholic beverages are permitted.
Beer and wine may only be served to—or possessed, consumed, or purchased by—individuals age twenty-one and up. A valid ID is required.
Beer and wine may only be sold by pre-approved vendors.
Personal use of beer and wine in single-serving containers is permitted. This does not include allowing the use by way of sampling or the distribution of single-serving containers at promotional events or private parties/organized gatherings. For these occasions, please refer to the programs below.
Beer kegs are not allowed, since they are not designed for personal use.
For your convenience, we have developed two programs to facilitate ease of compliance with these Alcohol Policy rules:
Beer and Wine Tickets: As a sponsor, team, or exhibitor, drink tickets can be purchased in advance for your group to use throughout the four-day event. The tickets can be redeemed for beer or wine at Sea Otter-approved pouring stations. The tickets will be sold in packets of fifty and may be purchased from Zeph Despard, Sea Otter Food & Beverage Coordinator, by email or at 831-229-3238.
Promotional Events and Private Parties: Beer and wine tickets will also be required for promotional events and private parties/organized gatherings.
