The Quick Answer

Corkage means "Charge Levied by Restaurants for Consumption of Alcohol Bought Elsewhere."

More Observations...

It refers to the fee that some restaurants charge customers for allowing them to drink alcohol that they have bought elsewhere and brought to the restaurant. The idea of charging corkage is that the restaurant will incur expenses in opening and serving bottles of wine brought in by the customer. However, many restaurants apply a corkage fee to all drinks, including canned beers and soft drinks, whether or not they have any involvement with their serving. Corkage is often referred to as "Bring Your Own Bottle" (BYOB).
