The Butte County Department of Behavioral Health Friday Night Live and Club Live Programs have partnered with Butte Youth Now Coalition (BYNC) to develop and Implement MERCHANT COMMITTED Education Program for off-sale and on-sale alcoholic beverage retailers (markets, stores, gas stations, bars, restaurants, especial event venues). The goal of this program is to reduce underage drinking and youth access to alcohol by increasing alcoholic beverage establishment compliance.
The Responsible Beverage Service aims to reduce alcohol-related problems by providing merchant education and then holding merchants accountable if they violate state and local laws, such as sales to minors and intoxicated patrons.Merchants are educated to Notice, Choose, and Act during the merchant committed programs.
