Amends the Liquor Control Act of 1934. Provides that a craft distiller license shall allow the sale and offering for sale at retail for use and consumption on the premises specified in the license any form of alcoholic liquor purchased from a licensed distributor or importing distributor. Provides that a craft distiller may sell up to 5,000 gallons (rather than 2,500 gallons) of spirits to non-licensees to the extent permitted by an exemption approved by the Illinois Liquor Control Commission pursuant to a specified provision. Makes a conforming change. Provides that a craft distiller tasting permit allows a craft distiller to sell and offer for sale at retail, but not for resale in any form, up to 5,000 gallons of the alcoholic liquor transferred from the craft distiller's premises to the extent approved by the State Commission pursuant to a specified provision.
