Liquor License Application Process
Who needs a liquor license?Anyone who sells or offers to sell alcoholic beverages. Oregon Revised Statutes state the requirement of holding a liquor license in order to sell alcohol (ORS 471.405), and define various activities that constitute a "sale" (ORS 471.406).
How do I get a license?The process starts with the Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC). You must complete a packet of forms, including an endorsement from your local government, and submit them to the OLCC for consideration. You can find the necessary forms by visiting the OLCC website.
What do I need from the City of Beaverton?
The OLCC will provide forms to bring to the City for our endorsement. Please bring your forms to Police Administration on the second floor of the Police Department, or call 503-526-2264 if you have additional questions.
