Liquor laws differ from state to state. They can even vary within different areas of the same state. For example, Evanston, just north of the city was "dry" for over 100 years. The one thing that these laws have in common across the entire country is that they are designed to prohibit or regulate the sale, manufacture and consumption of alcoholic beverages, while generating revenue through taxation. One of the ways that states accomplish control is by issuing liquor licenses. If an establishment does not comply with the state regulations as set forth by law, the state will "pull" (revoke) their license. The state may also restrict who may receive a liquor license.
The primary purpose of these licenses is to control the hours during which liquor may be sold, as well as who may consume the liquor. This gives the state extensive power over you and your right to make a living selling a legal product. That's why you need the expertise of an attorney and the Law Offices of Mitch Furman.
