(a)  Delivery to Retailer; Consumer. For each sale of draught beer, the wholesaler shall transport the beer to the premises of a licensed retailer. There the wholesaler shall collect for the sale, and the retailer shall complete and sign his sales ticket, writing on it the name of the purchaser and the address to which the beer is to be delivered. If the purchaser of the draught beer can not transport the beer or does not know how to set up and tap the beer, he may request that the wholesaler assist him. Upon receiving such a request, the wholesaler may deliver the beer from the retailer's premises to the person and place designated and may set it up.

(b)  Assisting Consumer. Upon arrival at the designated place of delivery, the wholesaler may set up the equipment, tap the keg and test to see that it is working properly. The wholesaler may pick up his kegs and equipment at any time.

(c)  Tapping Accessories. Hand pumps, carbon dioxide cylinders, related gauges, tubs, ice and cups may be delivered with the kegs by a wholesaler to a consumer. Such accessories may be left with a retailer only upon the filling of an order from a retailer who has a specific and current order from a consumer, and the kegs and accessories are to be delivered by the retailer or picked up by the consumer. Nothing in this Rule shall be construed to allow a wholesaler to loan or rent tubs or tapping accessories to a retailer for any period of time.

(d)  Keg Deposits. Any deposit charged by a brewer to a wholesaler for a draught malt beverage keg shall be charged to and collected from the retailer upon delivery of the keg to the retailer.
