Having a liquor license for your business allows you to participate in a lucrative industry. To obtain the proper licensure you must complete the proper application, which varies based on your type of business (restaurant, cafe, grocery store, etc.) with the Department of Consumer Protection. Once your application has been approved, you are required to provide the town clerk with a copy, and hang your license in a clear location where it may be viewed at any time by police officers or department representatives.
When They Can Strip You of Your Career
Having a liquor license does not guarantee a liquor license for the remainder of time the business is operating. Certain standards are required in order to maintain your license. Failure to comply with standards may result in the Department of Consumer Protection revoking your license. Some reasons your license may be revoked are:
Selling in unauthorized locations. Your license designates when and where you may sell liquor. Acting outside of those parameters is a violation.
Selling to an intoxicated individual. It is in the interest of public safety that liquor is not provided to an intoxicated individual.
Failure to check identification. It is important to verify that all consumers are of legal drinking age. Failure to do so could lead to a revoked license.
