Obtaining a Liquor License in Missouri

There are several different types of liquor licenses in the state of Missouri, including by-the-drink, package, wholesaler and manufacturer. The type of license you will need depends upon the nature of your business. Another important part of getting a liquor license is the fact that licenses are managed at the district, instead of state, level. This means that you will need to go through your local district office to obtain the license; Brydon, Swearengen & England can help facilitate this process for you.
