Liquor Licenses

A liquor license is required to sell or distribute alcoholic beverages for commercial purposes in the Town of Erie and a state and local liquor license must be obtained. All applicants must comply with the Colorado Revised Statutes, the Town’s Municipal Code, and the Local Liquor Licensing Rules of Procedure.

It is the responsibility of the applicant to review the Colorado Department of Revenue: Liquor Enforcement Laws, Rules, and Regulations to ensure understanding of requirements and regulations of alcohol licenses.

While the Town Clerk’s office is available to provide some assistance in the application process, we cannot provide legal advice and cannot make any representations or assurances as to the final outcome of the process. It is certainly not essential that you seek the assistance of an attorney to guide you through this process; although you may strongly consider doing so. In many instances, legal assistance can help you move through the process more quickly and with fewer complications.
