Alcohol Licensing

Alcohol Licensing Counsel For Retailers, Bars And Restaurants

To get a lottery license or an alcohol license in Georgia is to become familiar with a dizzying variety of local regulations and requirements. While the state creates a process for considering and granting licenses to sell beer, wine or liquor, the details of who can sell what and where are left largely to local governments, which vary a great deal in their ordinances and regulations.
