Liquor License laws are very strict and if a business fails to follow them or breaks them, they may have their liquor license revoked. The California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) governs the operation of licensed establishments and has the power to revoke or suspend such licenses. They may also revoke a liquor license based on the acts of the employees of the licensed establishment. Even crimes that are not related to liquor laws or the business itself may result in a revocation of a liquor license. If the business owner commits or is charged with a crime involving moral turpitude, whether on the business premises or not, they may have their liquor license revoked, even if it had nothing to do with the business that owns the license.
Having a liquor license revoked can be detrimental to the business. Whether a bar, restaurant, liquor store, convenience store, caterer, nightclub or market, the revocation of a liquor license can mean a massive decrease in sales and profits, in addition to a ruined reputation and a loss of business. Just some examples of acts that may result in the loss of a liquor license are: selling alcohol to a minor, neighborhood noise complaints, not addressing objectionable issues on the premises, selling alcohol outside the premises, selling past normal operating hours, violating the health and safety codes, being accused of selling drugs, theft, etc. In many cases, the business owner may also incur fines, penalties, or even face jail time, in addition to having their liquor license revoked.
