The State of Nebraska has established age limits regarding the sale of age-sensitive products as follows:

Alcohol Sales

  • The age to sell alcohol is 19.
  • An employee who is 16 years of age or older may stock, sack and carry out alcoholic liquor from licensed establishments, although she/he must be accompanied by a person over 21 years of age (the purchaser).
  • An employee may remove liquor containers as a waiter, waitress or busboy of a restaurant, hotel, etc. upon reaching the age of 16.
  • Other than stated above, an individual may not buy, sell, dispense or have in possession or physical control any alcoholic liquor in Nebraska, except in his/her permanent place of residence.
  • Licensee must not permit possession or consumption by a minor on the licensed premise.
  • Any employee may be charged criminally for selling or serving a minor.


Lottery Ticket Sales

  • There is no age restriction for the clerk who sells Lottery tickets.
  • Players of Lottery must be 19 years of age to buy or redeem tickets.

Tobacco Sales

  • There is no minimum age to sell tobacco products; however, NGIA recommends business owners be mindful of very young employees selling tobacco given it is an age-sensitive product.
  • Purchasers must be 21 years of age or older.
