LiquorResponsible Service of Alcohol

If you supply alcohol for consumption at your venue providing free drinking water to patrons, is a must. 

It is not just a nice thing to do, it is mandatory under the conditions of your licence.   

It is your responsibility, as a licensee, to meet this requirement.

Depending on the type of venue or event, the way you choose to provide water may vary.  For example, a local bowls club may provide jugs of water and glasses on the bar for patrons to help themselves, or a wine tasting event may provide clearly marked water stations adjacent to alcohol service areas.

Certain licences contain a condition which also requires licensees to advertise the fact that water is provided, free of charge.  If you are unsure about your obligations, check your licence conditions.   

To help you advertise free water at your venue or event, you can download the VCGLR’s  free water poster here. (PDF, 3.38 MB)
