(a) A club license authorizes a club or organization to sell alcoholic beverages for consumption only on the licensed premises.

(b) A club license may only be issued to a club, fraternal organization, patriotic organization, or social organization that has been (1) chartered by a state or national organization for a period of two consecutive years before application for a license under this section; or (2) chartered by a national organization and the national organization has maintained a chartered club or organization within the state for a period of at least 20 years. The organization licensed under this section must be operated for social, recreational, political, benevolent, or athletic purposes and not for profit. A club license may only be issued to an organization if none of the income from the sale of alcoholic beverages is distributed to its members, directors, or officers. Soliciting of public patronage of the club premises except as approved by the board is a violation of this section.

Alcoholic beverages may be purchased only in the portion of the club rooms that are part of the licensed premises.

(e) Guests who enter the club premises on the invitation of a member and in the company of the member may be served but not sold alcoholic beverages. A guest must leave the premises immediately upon the departure of the member who extended the invitation to enter.

(f) Alcoholic beverages purchased by a club or organization licensed under this section may not be used or consumed off the licensed premises of the club or organization by any person, including club members and employees unless used or consumed at social, recreational, benevolent, or athletic functions of the club or organization and the use or consumption is approved by the board.

(g) Notwithstanding AS 04.16.049 , access by persons under 21 years of age to

(1) a club's licensed premises is permitted when alcoholic beverages are not present; and

(2) the premises of a patriotic organization licensed as a club under this section is permitted when alcoholic beverages are present if the person possesses a valid active duty military or armed forces identification card issued by the United States Department of Defense or the United States Department of Homeland Security.

(h) In this section, "member" means a holder of paid-up membership entitling the holder to all voting rights and privileges of membership under the constitution or bylaws of the club or organization.
