Our professional liquor license brokers will guide you through these eight steps to acquire a San Bernardino liquor license.


  1. Secure the location: Select the premises you wish to serve or sell liquor. This initial step requires proof that you have purchased, rented, or leased the establishment.
  2. Select your liquor license: Assess the needs of your business to determine which type of liquor license you need to sell alcohol legally. Also, this is when you need to choose if you will go through the California ABC or an expert liquor license brokerage such as Liquor License Auctioneers.
  3. Open your escrow account: To continue the process of acquiring a San Bernardino County alcohol license, you’ll need to open an escrow account which is where all of your associated alcohol permit funds will exist. The purpose of this escrow account is to make the transfer of liquor license ownership easy.  Per the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control, you must open an escrow account when securing a liquor license, utilizing a third party escrow company is recommended.
  4. Survey the location: A licensed contractor needs to come out to your establishment to inspect the area where you are seeking to sell liquor. Our expert liquor license brokers can handle this step if you choose.
  5. Complete your ABC Application: Once completed, send your ABC application to the CA Alcoholic Beverage Control for review. Liquor License Auctioneers can fill out this application on your behalf.
  6. Post a notice: When the CA ABC has reviewed your application, they will send a notice of intent to sell alcohol which must be displayed at your brick-and-mortar location for a period of 30 days.
  7. Submit to investigation: Within 30 days, the CA ABC will conduct an inspection of your property and evaluate whether they will grant you the San Bernardino liquor license at this time.
  8. Receive the liquor license: If the evaluation goes well, then they will send you the physical alcohol license for San Bernardino. Once you receive the alcohol permit, you need to showcase it at your business location properly.


If you got through each of these eight steps smoothly, you’ve ensured that you’ve met the regulations to legally hold a liquor license in San Bernardino from the state of California. At the same time that you are fulfilling these eight requirements, you should see if the local municipal government has any stipulations that would be a factor in slowing down your progress to obtain a San Bernardino alcohol permit. Sometimes the municipality has additional regulations and zoning permits (CUP’s) that must be met as well. If you want to have your San Bernardino liquor license in a timely manner, it’s a good idea to know what these are.
