Liquor License Violations

Rules — Rules — Rules

Hardly anyone gets excited about rules, regulations, stipulations, conditions or other restrictions that make you do something, or not do something. But that is reality. If you own a winery, nightclub, catering business, convenience store or other business that has a liquor license, then you are governed by a lot of rules. Some of these rules are imposed by the city, county or other local governing body, and others are imposed by the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC).

Liquor license violations occur when the rules are not followed. A liquor license violation is a serious matter because it could mean a license suspension or revocation.

Our law firm has helped many licensed business owners when they have violated a license condition. Our liquor law attorney can meet and negotiate with local bodies or the ABC, in an effort to lessen the penalties you face.

The following are grounds that constitute a basis for the suspension or revocation of licenses: The misrepresentation of a material fact by an applicant in obtaining a license. — ABC ACT, Division 9, Chapter 1, Section 24200 (c)

License Violations

Liquor license conditions are like your own private regulations. Here are a few violations that we see regularly:

  • Noise violation — even though noise is not a ‘liquor’ issue
  • Premises violations – such as propping a back door open, or not disposing of trash properly
  • Violations caused by guests — such as loitering
  • Keg tags — failure to keep your kegs labeled is an ABC violation (10 day suspension)
  • Minors — employment of a minor, minor on the premises or sales to minors
  • Employee violations — such as failure to keep certain records always accessible in a file

The list of potential violations is a long one. If you have violated one of the conditions for your liquor license, do not hesitate to call our toll free number, 1-800-262-5647, or contact us online to schedule a free initial consultation with a lawyer. We’d be happy to walk you through the process — from A to B to C.
