Liquor Law

Saving Your Seat at the Bar

Liquor licensing and regulation often involves federal, state, and local governmental authorities. The federal licensing and regulatory agency is the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax Trade Bureau. In Colorado the state licensing and regulation is held by both the Colorado Liquor Division which is a part of the Colorado Department of Revenue. In Colorado, the local authority is held by various entities, most often the city or county which makes Colorado a dual licensing state. Obtaining a Colorado liquor license is a critical, and often complex, step for any businesses that intends to sell or serve alcohol.
