VIRGINIA ABC

Some of our most common questions are regarding ABC Licenses, and who can purchase directly from a wholesaler.  Below are the most common ABC licenses available, and which situations they are best suited for.

Banquet License

"Banquet licenses allow persons or groups to host events such as wedding receptions, tastings or fundraisers, where alcohol is served in an unlicensed location or club premise."

Retail License

"Retail licenses allow the sale of alcohol at restaurants, hotels, convenience stores, grocery stores, etc."

Permits

"Additional privileges may be added to retail and industry licenses. These include keg, in-state delivery, and solicitor tasting permits."

Consumer Kegs

"If you wish to purchase a keg without an ABC License, here are the steps involved:

  • You will need to go to a retailer that has an off-premises keg permit privilege (for example, a grocery store).
  • You will need to present a valid ID to show that you're age 21 years or older.
  • Then you will need to provide the required information to the retailer so that the retailer may complete the keg registration declaration and receipt.
  • The retailer will have you read and sign the declaration. The retailer is responsible for showing you how to use the keg booklet."
