The Washington State Liquor Control Board is in charge of regulating the activities in relation to the sales and service of alcohol in the state. It mandates on-premise alcohol servers to complete the Mandatory Alcohol Server Training (MAST) course program online within 60 days of employment date. There are two types of permit in the State of Washington:
Class 12 – Are intended for 21 years old and older. The permit allows individuals to draw alcoholic beverages from tap and mix drinks; take orders for alcoholic beverages and serve them; hold beer and wine tasting at a grocery store; and manage the establishment (with one Class 12 permit holder on duty).
Class 13 – Are intended for employees 18 years old and older. The permit allows employees to take alcoholic beverages orders and deliver the beverage to the customer’s tables. It limits the employee’s action to serving the alcohol only. Permit holders are eligible to upgrade to a Class 12 permit once they turn 21.
