(815 ILCS 720/6) (from Ch. 43, par. 306)
    Sec. 6. Transfer of business assets or stock. (1) No brewer shall unreasonably withhold or delay its approval of any assignment, sale or transfer of the stock of a wholesaler or all or any portion of a wholesaler's assets, wholesaler's voting stock, the voting stock of any parent corporation, or the beneficial ownership or control of any other entity owning or controlling wholesaler, including the wholesaler's rights and obligations under the terms of an agreement whenever the person or persons to be substituted meet reasonable standards. Upon the death of one of the partners of a partnership operating the business of a wholesaler, no brewer shall deny the surviving partner or partners of such partnership the right to become a successor-in-interest to the agreement between the brewer and such partnership, provided that the survivor has been active in the management of the partnership and is otherwise capable of carrying on the business of the partnership.
    (2) Notwithstanding the provisions of subsection (1) upon the death of a wholesaler no brewer shall deny approval for any transfer of ownership to a surviving spouse or adult child of an owner of a wholesaler; provided, however, that such subsequent transfers of such ownership by such surviving spouse or adult child shall thereafter be subject to the provisions of subsection (1).
