Temporary Beer Event Permit

Temporary beer event permits for the sale of beer (3.2%) are issued by the Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission for on-premise consumption at a temporary event that does not last longer than 30 days. Permits are issued by the DABC Director contingent on review of the Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission. To ensure adequate processing and approval, complete applications should be submitted 30 days prior to the event. Applications submitted outside of these guidelines risk non-issuance of a permit. Additionally, Due to statutory restrictions, applications received less than 7 business days prior to the event will not be considered. When counting days, realize that there must be seven business days between the day the application is received and the date of the event).

A complete application includes local consent by a city, town, or county in which the event is held and requires you to get the written consent of the local jurisdiction where the event will be held. Please note that each local jurisdiction has their own procedures for issuing local consent. Please work with your locality to ensure that local consent is sent in a time for DABC processing.
