Massachusetts ABCC Increases 5-Store Limit for Off-Premise Licenses
The Massachusetts Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission (ABCC)'s law regarding the increase in off-premise liquor license from five to seven will be effective January 1, 2016. The legislation passed in 2011 and has no effect on the number of available licenses within each city or town.
Persons who wish to take advantage of this new law may file an application with the local licensing authorities after January 1, 2016.
