Types of Marin County Liquor Licenses

As a business owner looking to sell liquor at your Marin County establishment, it’s essential that you purchase a Marin County liquor license. In northern California, Marin County is located in the San Francisco Bay Area. The county has a population of 260,000, and most of these residents live in Novato, the largest city by area, and San Rafael, the county seat and most populated city. Many locals and travelers spend time at Marin County places like Point Reyes National Seashore, Mount Tamalpais, Bay Area Discovery Museum, Muir Woods National Monument, Angel Island, Marin Headlands, and the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Marin County Civic Center. Each year, the Marin County Fair kicks off in San Rafael, CA, with carnival rides, concerts, food, games, and fireworks - drawing a crowd to the area.

How to Buy a Marin County Liquor License

 

California allows two ways for buyers to obtain a liquor license in Marin County. One way is to secure an alcohol permit directly from the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC). The other way to attain an alcohol license in Marin County is through a liquor license broker on the secondary market, such as Liquor License Auctioneers. 

 

Usually, the only way to purchase a Marin County liquor license is through the open market since there are a limited number of alcohol licenses available at any given time. Buyers must wait for a seller who is willing to sell a liquor license to them in Marin County, California.

 

This is where Liquor License Auctioneers enters the picture.

Our experienced liquor license brokers can guide you through the eight-step process of securing a liquor license in Marin County, CA.

 

  1. Secure the location: Choose a physical location where you will run your business. This location should be purchased, leased, or rented.
  2. Select your liquor license: Select the type of Marin County alcohol license you need for your type of business. Then, choose whether you will acquire the alcohol license from the CA ABC or through the secondary market using a liquor license broker like Liquor License Auctioneers.
  3. Open your escrow account: Choose a third-party company to work with to open an escrow account. This escrow account will be where all monetary transactions are held during the process of acquiring a Marin County liquor license.
  4. Survey the location: Employ a surveyor to inspect your business property. Liquor License Auctioneers can complete this step for you.
  5. Complete your ABC Application: Once you have filled out the ABC Application and submitted the related forms, you can send it to the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) for them to review. Our liquor license brokers can assist you in completing the ABC Application.
  6. Post a notice: When the CA ABC has reviewed and approved your ABC Application for a Marin County alcohol license, they will mail you a notice of intent to sell alcohol. This notice must be featured for 30 days at your business establishment.
  7. Submit to investigation: After 30 days, the Department of CA ABC will come to your place of business to perform a final inspection. This inspection ensures that your business is up to code and that you have met the requirements for selling liquor.
  8. Receive the liquor license: When you have completed the seven prior steps, the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) will send you the official Marin County liquor license, which must be displayed in a prominent place at your business location.

 

The process of procuring an alcohol permit in Marin County, California, can take a while. The aforementioned steps will meet the requirements set by the California Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC). To expedite the process, make sure to see what is required by your local municipal government for purchasing a liquor license in San Rafael, California.
