Initial Inspections

Our inspectors will continue to conduct initial inspections.  We have made changes, however, to the procedures related to these inspections to protect the health and safety of our inspectors and the applicants.  Our inspectors will be physically present at the location but will conduct the inspection from their vehicle.  They will utilize FaceTime on iPhones or other options if the applicant possesses an Android.  Our inspectors will contact you prior to the inspection to explain the process and determine the best course of action.  You may contact our inspectors directly via email at:

Upcoming Beer Board Meetings

As of this moment, the only meeting cancelled is our night meeting scheduled for Wednesday, March 25th.  Assuming an applicant submits the necessary documents, we will be able to grant a temporary permit until such time as the board meets again in an official capacity.  Any hearings scheduled for that meeting will be rescheduled.  Similarly, any special events that were cancelled due to COVID-19 will not require a new application or additional fee.  We thank you for your support and ask for your patience as we navigate this process together.
