For purposes of the law regarding farm wineries, specifies that: (1) "bottle" means a standard wine container that meets the design, fill, and headspace requirements under federal law; and (2) "bulk", with regard to bulk wine purchases and sales, means a container of more than 60 liters. Allows a farm winery permit holder or an artisan distiller's permit holder to: (1) be the proprietor of a restaurant; (2) transfer wine or liquor from the farm winery or artisan distillery to the restaurant; (3) have a window between the farm winery or artisan distillery and the restaurant; and (4) have a doorway or other opening between the farm winery or artisan distillery and the restaurant. Provides that the restaurant of a microbrewery, farm winery, or artisan distillery is not required to sell the minimum amount of food required to provide separation between the bar area and the family room by means of a structure or barrier (instead of providing separation by a nontransparent wall). Provides that a minor may be on the premises of a farm winery under certain circumstances. Allows the holder of a retailer's (restaurant) permit to have an interest in an artisan distiller's permit and a farm winery permit. Allows distillers and rectifiers to have an interest in a beer permit.
