The liquor trade is one of those businesses that require a compulsory license. Its availability and performance of licensed services are strictly checked by regulatory authorities.
At the same time, a license is needed to trade both strong and low alcohol drinks, for example, for retail trade in beer. Such trade involves the sale of beer directly to individuals for their personal use. This rule applies to any form of beer sale – on tap or in bottles.

After obtaining the license, you need to place a copy of it at the point of sale of beer. It should be easily visible to visitors.
