Although Tennessee State law does not require liquor-by-the-drink establishments to check ID prior to serving an alcoholic beverage, in order to prevent sales to under 21 individuals, it is a recommended best practice for establishments to have an internal policy regarding checking identification prior to serving. Examples of the recommended forms of identification are:
Carding Requirements: On Premise establishments do not have mandatory carding policy, however, it is against the law to serve anyone under the age of 21. Off Premise establishments must card everyone, this includes grocery stores, package stores, and convenience stores. The ID cannot be expired. A carding exemption can be made for those who are obviously over the age of 50.
