OLCC Increases Minimum Pricing

The Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC) this week approved a new minimum pricing structure  which ensures  that a standard 750ml bottle of liquor that is 40% alcohol by volume (ABV) cannot be sold for less than $8.95. The pricing will increase based on a product’s ABV, with higher potency beverages increasing more sharply.

Addressing the increasing public and societal cost of the excessive consumption of alcohol is a component of the LOC’s behavioral health legislative priority.  Pricing was done by administrative action and will not require a legislative remedy. View the full pricing chart and OLCC staff summary.
