However, the customer must be at least twenty-one years of age and may only be offered one glass of wine or beer, and wine or beer served or consumed shall be purchased from a Washington state licensed retailer or a Washington state liquor store or agency at full retail price.

Any employee involved in the service of wine or beer must complete a board-approved limited alcohol server training program.
