Liquor License Applications


Liquor licenses are issued by the Arizona Department of Liquor License and Control. The Maricopa County Board of Supervisors must review liquor license applications for businesses located on unincorporated county land. Depending on the type of license, the County review could entail investigation and reports from the Sheriff's Office, Planning and Development, Treasurer and the Health Departments which can take 4 to 6 weeks. Some types of licenses require a 20 day posting period. When the posting period is complete and departments have submitted their report, the application is brought before the Board of Supervisors for recommendation at one of two monthly formal meetings (See the Clerk's Calendar for upcoming meeting dates). After the meeting, Maricopa County will forward the application along with a recommendation for approval or denial to the Arizona Department of Liquor License and Control for further processing.

Special Event Applications, Remote Tasting  Room Applications, and Extension of Premises/Patio Permits are filed with the local jurisdiction first, and then forwarded to the Arizona Department of Liquor License and Control for final approval. If the location in question is within unincorporated Maricopa County, please file your documents with the Maricopa County Clerk of the Board’s Office.
