To apply for an Alcoholic Beverage License, complete an Application for Sales of Alcoholic Beverages and have all signatures notarized. There is a non-refundable application fee of $100 and a publication fee of $184 (in the case of wine or liquor license requests). We also need a copy of the lease agreement for the business and a copy of the corporation papers.
Applications for the sales of wine or liquor require a public hearing before the Madison City Council to consent the issuance of a license by the State of Alabama Alcoholic Beverage Control Board. No public hearing may be held less than 14 days from the date of filing the application or less than 10 days from the day of publication in the newspaper.
Upon the issuance of your State of Alabama ABC License for the sales of alcoholic beverages, bring copies to the Revenue Department, located at 100 Hughes Road, and we will issue your local business license for the sales of alcoholic beverages.
