Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission Frequently Asked Questions

The Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission ("ABCC") is charged with the supervision of the conduct of the business of manufacturing, importing, exporting, storing, transporting and selling alcoholic beverages. The ABCC issues the following Frequently Asked Questions to provide guidance to Local Licensing Authorities ("LLAs"), members of the industry, and the public at large, on some of the questions most often asked of the ABCC.

Nothing in this document should be considered legal advice but instead should be used as a tool to assist individuals in navigating the sometimes-complicated alcohol laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

This document (please see document download below) is divided into two sections: (1) questions related to the retail alcoholic beverages industry; and (2) questions related to the state alcoholic beverages industry.

Please note that anywhere a statute is cited by section number ("§"), it is referring to the Massachusetts Liquor Control Act, M.G.L. c. 138, unless otherwise noted.
