Bill Would Allow Minors to Serve Alcohol in Wisconsin

Some kids may soon be able to serve alcohol before they’re old enough to drive.
A new bill proposed in Wisconsin would allow 14 to 17-year-olds to serve alcohol to seated customers. Currently, a worker has to be 18 to serve alcohol in Wisconsin.
According to lawmakers sponsoring the bill, the age limit for serving alcohol “causes workforce issues due to an establishment’s underage employees only being able to do part of their job.”
The bill would require the licensed operator of the establishment to be on-site and supervising.
If the bill passes, bar and restaurant owners would still be allowed to approve who would serve the drinks.
Another Wisconsin fun fact, a minor of ANY AGE can drink alcohol legally in Wisconsin if they are accompanied by a parent or guardian and the owner of the establishment does not object.
