Be Proactive to Prevent Liquor License Loss

Liquor License

To finally receive a liquor license for your restaurant is a big deal. After all, it takes a lot of work to finally receive the license. Unfortunately, it doesn’t take as much effort to lose your license. Here is what you need to know about protecting your liquor license.

How Can You Lose Your License?

What makes a bar lose its liquor license? You can lose your license for several reasons. If you serve someone too much alcohol after they are too intoxicated, your business may be held liable. Also, if patrons are acting disorderly because of intoxication, your business may be investigated and you could lose your license.

To keep your license, be diligent when it comes to checking IDs. If you accidentally serve a minor, your license may be revoked.

How Can You Protect Your Restaurant?

If your business serves alcohol, your risk mitigation will look different than a business that does not serve alcohol. Liquor liability can help protect your business against some of the risks. For instance, if a customer gets out of hand or if someone drinks too much alcohol, you have insurance for legal fees or settlement costs.

When you receive your liquor license, it can take your restaurant or club to the next level. However, you need to be more careful than before to keep that license.
