About The Type 41 Application

In California, liquor licenses are issued by the Department of Alcohol Beverage Control (ABC). If you’re a restaurant (or eating place) and intend to sell beer or wine, you’re going to need to obtain a Type 41 liquor license.

If you’ve never done it before, the process can be overwhelming and complicated. The application includes more than 10 forms, which can vary based on your business type. 

This expert walkthrough eliminates confusion and saves time by providing the required forms, and then walking you step-by-step through the process of completing each.

By the end, you’ll have a fully built-out application that’s ready to turn into ABC for review and approval.
