    7         561.221 Licensing of manufacturers and distributors as
    8  vendors and of vendors as manufacturers; conditions and

   10         (2)(a) Notwithstanding s. 561.22, s. 561.42, or any other
   11  provision of the Beverage Law, the division is authorized to
   12  issue vendor’s licenses to a manufacturer of malt beverages,
   13  even if such manufacturer is also licensed as a distributor, for
   14  the sale of alcoholic beverages on property consisting of a
   15  single complex, which property shall include a brewery and such
   16  other structures which promote the brewery and the tourist
   17  industry of the state. However, such property may be divided by
   18  no more than one public street or highway. Notwithstanding any
   19  other provision of the Beverage Law, a manufacturer holding
   20  multiple manufacturing licenses may transfer malt beverages to a
   21  licensed facility, as provided in s. 563.022(14)(d), in an
   22  amount up to the yearly production amount at the receiving
   23  facility. Malt beverages and other alcoholic beverages
   24  manufactured by another licensed manufacturer, including any
   25  malt beverages that are owned in whole or in part by the
   26  manufacturer but are brewed by another manufacturer, must be
   27  obtained through a licensed distributor that is not also a
   28  licensed manufacturer, a licensed broker or sales agent, or a
   29  licensed importer. A manufacturer possessing a vendor’s license
   30  under this subsection is not permitted to make deliveries under
   31  s. 561.57(1).
