ABC-521-A - PRIORITY LICENSE APPLICATION – SOLE OWNER. Licenses to sell beer and wine are available year-round from the State if the applicant and the premises qualify. However, general licenses, which authorize the retail sale of beer, wine and distilled spirits, are restricted in number and are authorized to be issued originally and via inter-county transfer only once per year, based upon population vs. existing license ratios within each county. Where there are more applicants than licenses available, drawings are held and “priority” rankings are assigned. Licenses applied for and issued via the priority system are subject to unique requirements and restrictions. The only other way to obtain a general license is to purchase an existing license from someone who has one already within the same county.
