A Trustworthy Resource For Alcohol Licensing Needs
Obtaining or renewing an alcohol vending license in Kentucky is a high-stakes legal matter for businesses and nonprofit organizations that seek to serve beer, liquor or wine to the public. The necessary legal steps may involve complex interactions with cities and counties, in addition to the Kentucky Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC).
Municipal, urban and county offices receive and screen applications for dozens of varieties of liquor licenses and send those they approve to the commonwealth for final approval. Each local government body has unique alcohol ordinances to follow, as well as quotas that dictate how many licenses the city or county will allow. A commercial or nonprofit entity may be approved for a one-year license or a temporary community event-based license. Costs vary greatly but are typically in the thousands of dollars. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Commonwealth of Kentucky has waived renewal fees for restaurants and bars with existing alcohol licenses. Despite this concession, many establishments that serve or seek to serve liquor need legal help to navigate through the system successfully and complete all required steps in a timely manner.
