If a license is issued under this paragraph to a fair association solely for the purpose of conducting on the licensed premises wine judging or tasting events involving servings of wine no greater than one fluid ounce each, s. 125.68 (2) does not apply to these licensed premises.

125.51(10)(b)2. 2. The duration of an event under subd. 1. may not exceed one day.
125.51(10)(b)3. 3. For purposes of the 2-license limit imposed under par. (a), each event for which multiple licenses are issued as provided in subd. 1. shall count as one license toward this 2-license limit.
125.51(10)(b)4. 4.

125.51 Annotation A city ordinance allowing a recipient of a new Class B license who pays the $10,000 fee under sub. (3) (e) 2. to apply for a $10,000 economic development grant from the city was not barred by the statute or constitution. Alexander v. City of Madison, 2001 WI App 208, 247 Wis. 2d 576, 634 N.W.2d 577, 00-2692.
125.51 Annotation The licensed premises, with respect to a “Class B" intoxicating liquor license under this section, may be co-extensive with the premises where consumption may occur. Thus, the premises to be listed on a “Class B" license are not necessarily confined to the dimensions of a bar room or storage room. Here, the town chose to license the entire eight acres of a resort as the premises for the sale, and also the consumption, of fermented malt beverages and intoxicating liquor. The town made that choice. The license was not void due to an insufficient description of the premises. Wisconsin Dolls, LLC v. Town of Dell Prairie, 2012 WI 76, 342 Wis. 2d 350, 815 N.W.2d 690, 10-2900.
125.51 Annotation Country clubs opening any part of their facilities to the general public lose their eligibility for “country club" liquor or beer licenses. 69 Atty. Gen. 248.
