Samples may only be provided to persons licensed as a distributor or a retailer under the Kansas liquor control act, and such person's employees, or to persons licensed under the club and drinking establishment act, and such person's employees. Samples may be served on the licensed premises of the licensee, or on the premises of a licensed retailer, provided no sample shall be served on that portion of the premises of a licensed retailer that is open to the public and where sales of alcoholic liquor at retail are made. Samples may be served on the premises of a licensee holding a license issued under the club and drinking establishment act, provided no sample shall be served on that portion of the premises that is open to the public and where sales of alcoholic liquor are made. No sample shall be provided to any minor. Nothing in this subsection shall be construed to permit the licensee to sell any alcoholic liquor for consumption on the premises. The withdrawal of beer or cereal malt beverage shall be subject to the tax imposed by K.S.A. 79-4101 et seq., and amendments thereto, based on the applicable current posted bottle or case price. For purposes of providing samples pursuant to this subsection other than at industry seminars or to the licensee's employees, the term "sample" shall have the same meaning as that term is defined in K.S.A. 41-2601, and amendments thereto.
