Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
SECTION 1. Section 61-4-1515(E) of the 1976 Code is amended to read:

the maximum amount of beer that may be sold to an individual per day for off-premises consumption shall be equivalent to two hundred eighty-eight ounces in total;
(2) the beer only shall be sold in conjunction with a tour by the consumer of the permitted premises and the entire brewing process utilized at the permitted premises;
(3) the beer sold is for personal use only and must not be resold;
(4)(2) the beer must not be sold to anyone holding a retail beer and wine license for the purpose of resale in their establishment;
(5)(3) the brewery must sell the beer at the permitted premises at a price approximating retail prices generally charged for identical beverages in the county where the permitted premises are located; and
