How to Get an Alcohol License

Not just everyone can hand out beer and there are a lot of restrictions you have to follow to get one for your place of business. Depending on the state, the laws for liquor can be different, but generally, they follow two rules.

First, they limit the number of drinks a person can have, and second, they require that all unfinished bottles be left inside the restaurant to limit the number of public intoxication lawsuits. The Alcohol Beverage Control (or ABC) is different for every single state, and you’ll need to read up on it to ensure that your business meets the standards.

A Tavern license, which allows you to sell hard alcohol, a beer, and wine license that lets you serve non hard alcohol, and a restaurant license.
