State Alcohol License Applications
If you’ve ever searched for information about how to get a liquor license in the USA, you know it’s complicated. Each state has different licensing rules and regulations and there are many kinds of licenses, depending on how and where you intend to sell liquor. Unfortunately, for retailers and bar owners, there isn’t one federal alcohol license that allows you to operate country wide. You need to apply for a license in each state you wish to do business in.
While you can try “do-it-yourself” online liquor license resources, doing so without the requisite knowledge of requirements and a trained eye for what makes a strong application, can result in application rejection. Alcohol license application failure is both costly and time consuming. It may mean starting over and repaying expensive fees, or worse, result in the end of your business altogether. Our liquor license consultants take on the burden of the application process to increase the chances that your liquor license is approved.

US Liquor Manufacturing Licensing
Liquor manufacturers must also apply for a liquor license, but they do so at the federal level. The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) oversees alcohol licenses for producers and manufacturers (distilleries, breweries and wineries), importers, exporters and wholesalers. As with all USA alcohol licenses, there are numerous requirements that must be met to earn alcohol license approval. For example, a brewery or brew pub must submit approximately 14 documents ranging from articles of incorporation or articles of organization, lease agreements or articles of ownership, brewery diagrams, source of funds, and a brewer’s bond - to name just a few. You can see exactly what documents to submit by visiting the TTB Permits Online Required Documents selector. Failure to provide all documents, inconsistencies in documentation, issues with brewery layouts and myriad other requirements issues will result in application denial.
