With the Holidays in full swing and the New Year just around the corner, everyone has a lot on their plate. But whether your non-profit is hosting a (socially distancing) holiday party, your restaurant is hosting an al fresco New Year’s Eve experience, or you are thinking of offering wine and beer at a fundraiser, it is important to always check with your Annapolis attorney to stay in compliance with your county or local alcoholic beverage laws. If you are hosting a fundraiser at a local business, do you need a one-day liquor license? Have you ensured that you have requested your license well in advance of the deadline? Are you staying open later on New Year’s Eve and obtained any necessary permits or licenses, if applicable. Make sure that you can enjoy your Holiday season, and stay in compliance with your local alcoholic beverage laws. At Hillman, Brown & Darrow, our Annapolis attorneys are happy to help with any questions you may have when navigating the Alcoholic Beverage Article of the Maryland Code, or any other issue you may have this holiday season and throughout the year.
