When opening a bar, it is very important for you to have a valid liquor licensing. In order to get it, you have to follow a proper procedure that differs from state to state. To open a bar or any restaurant containing liquor, you will need to get a few different types of licenses, some of them are quite easy to get while others are a little confusing so you will have to seek someone’s help in order to properly understand them.

Importance of liquor license:

If you start your business including any type of liquor without a valid license, you will have to face certain consequences. The punishment for this crime includes heavy fine so you need to avoid it by getting liquor licensing for your business. 

Alcohol License:

An alcohol permit is a state given permit that lets you sell liquor in your Cafe or restaurant. Various states may have laws that are specially for them. So if you have a license of one state, it may not be valid for the other. That is why you need to make sure that you have a license of the state that you are selling your liquor in. 

It is very basic that all of the states set boundaries for the number of beverages you can offer to every client, and require incomplete jugs to be left inside the restaurants to be discarded. 

Types of liquor license:

There are two distinct kinds of licenses you can acquire for selling liquor. That includes the on-permit and off-permit licenses. On permit are for places that mean to offer alcohol to the people who are present in the locality e.g for a bar or eatery, since your clients will be expending the beverages inside your premises, you need an on-permit alcohol permit while the off permit is for the areas which are allowed to sell alcohol out of their premises e.g liquor stores. 

As referenced over, each state has its own standards and guidelines with respect to alcohol licenses. Each state has its own Alcohol Beverage Control (ABC) organization to direct the consumption of liquor. So in order to get a license of your state, go through all the official documents where all the liquor-related rules and regulations are mentioned. Once you have given a thorough read, complete your liquor licensing documentation by following the protocols mentioned inside these official documents.
