How to Buy a Montgomery County Liquor License

In Pennsylvania, there are four ways to obtain a liquor license in Montgomery County. 


  1. Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board (PLCB): Receive an alcohol license in Montgomery County directly from the Bureau of Licensing. All new applicants must apply to the PLCB.
  2. Person-to-Person Montgomery County Liquor License Transfer: This type of transfer applies to the owner of the liquor license, not the place of business. The ownership of the Montgomery County alcohol permit changes hands.
  3. Place-to-Place Montgomery County Alcohol License Transfer: The owner of a liquor license in Montgomery County can apply to transfer the liquor license to another business location. The owner stays the same.
  4. Person-to-Person and Place-to-Place Montgomery County Liquor License Transfer: Both the ownership and the business location are transferred to the applicant. Ownership and place of business changes.


If you choose any of the alternate routes to apply for an alcohol license in Montgomery County than directly from the PLCB, you may use a liquor license broker like Liquor License Auctioneers to help you secure a Montgomery County liquor license on the open market. 


The option to purchase a liquor license and receive it from the PLCB is not very common as there are a limited number of Montgomery County alcohol licenses available determined by the county’s population. In most cases, you’ll have to choose one of the other ways of acquiring a liquor license in Montgomery County. This may require you to wait for an alcohol permit to become available or until a liquor license broker will sell a liquor license to you. 


We excel at providing quality liquor licenses in Montgomery County for businesses of all types. Over the years of being in this field, we’ve connected and networked with lawyers and business people. These connections give us the ability to offer exclusive Montgomery County liquor licenses that aren’t available for other liquor license brokers to sell. This allows Liquor License Auctioneers to sell each Montgomery County alcohol license at a fair price. Please let us know if you are seeking a specific type of Montgomery County alcohol permit, and we’ll locate an available one for you to bid on.


Our expert liquor license brokers can guide you through the eight-step process to obtain an alcohol license in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.


  1. Secure the location: Select a place of business where you will sell alcohol, and be sure to lease, rent, or purchase this space.
  2. Select your liquor license: Choose which type of Montgomery County liquor license suits your business best. At this time, decide which of the four ways you’ll be purchasing your alcohol license using either the PLCB or a liquor license broker like Liquor License Auctioneers.
  3. Open your attorney trust account: All monetary transactions, including the cost to cover the sale of the Montgomery County alcohol license, should be held in an attorney trust account, ideally set up with an attorney handling the transfer.
  4. Survey the location: A survey of your business premises needs to be completed, and you can employ a certified inspector or our qualified liquor license brokers at Liquor License Auctioneers.
  5. Complete your PLCB Application: To complete the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board (PLCB) Application, you’ll need to return all original documents required for purchasing a liquor license in Montgomery County. These forms will all need to be reviewed at the time of your interview by a PLCB Investigator during the application process.
  6. Post a Public Notice of Application: When the PLCB Bureau of Licensing has reviewed and approved your Montgomery County alcohol license application, the PLCB should send you an orange notice indicating intent to sell alcohol at your business premises which must be featured prominently near the entrance of your business for at least 30 days. The notice of application must be kept up until the PLCB decides whether or not they will issue you the Montgomery County liquor license.
  7. Submit to investigation: A final inspection of your business establishment will be conducted by the PLCB, where they will come to your brick-and-mortar location. If everything passes their inspection, the PLCB will grant you the Montgomery County alcohol license.
  8. Receive the liquor license: If everything is approved, the PLCB will mail you the official Montgomery County liquor license, and you are instructed to display the alcohol permit at your business.


By fulfilling the requirements of each of the preceding eight steps, you’ll meet the standards set by the State of Pennsylvania’s PLCB Bureau of Licensing for attaining a Montgomery County liquor license. If you want to be sure you didn’t miss anything to make the process go smoothly, it’s a good idea to check with your local municipal government to see if there are any additional rules or regulations for securing a liquor license in Norristown, PA.
