OLCC expands the list of beverage containers you'll pay more for in the new year

The price of kombucha and those hard seltzers that are the hot, new alcohol-delivery beverages will rise by a dime after the first of the year but that's because the containers are now refundable under Oregon's bottle bill.

The Oregon Liquor Control Commission on Thursday approved its own rule changes and some passed by the Legislature.

Also added to the bottle bill were what the OLCC described as, "Kefir, drinkable yogurt, milk-based smoothies and other beverages that are primarily milk or plant-based milk but include other ingredients such as fruit."

Containers of milk, cream, half and half as well as plant or nut-based milks are still not refundable and you won't have to pay a deposit on them in 2020.
