(b) A person who is a representative or owner of a wholesale business, brewery, winery, bottling works, or distillery may not be issued, solely or together with others, a beverage dispensary license, a restaurant or eating place license, or package store license. A holder of a beverage dispensary license may be issued a brewpub license, subject to the provisions of AS 04.11.135. The prohibition against issuance of a restaurant or eating place license imposed under this subsection does not apply to a restaurant or eating place license issued on or before October 1, 1996 or a restaurant or eating place license issued under an application for a restaurant or eating place license approved on or before October 1, 1996.
(c) A license may not be leased by a licensee to another person, partnership, limited liability organization, or corporation.

(e) A holder of either a general wholesale license or a wholesale malt beverage and wine license may not be employed by or act as the agent or employee of the holder of a beverage dispensary or package store license.
(f) In this section, “direct or indirect financial interest” means holding a legal or equitable interest in the operation of a business licensed under this title. However, credit extended by a distiller, a brewery, or a winery to a wholesaler, or credit extended by a wholesaler to persons licensed under this title, or a consulting fee received from a person licensed under this title, is not considered a financial interest in a business licensed under this title.
