Liquor Licenses

The Board of License Commissioners (commonly referred to as the Liquor Board) regulates and enforces the provisions of the Alcoholic Beverage Laws as they are contained in the Alcohol Beverages Article of the Annotated Code of Maryland and the Rules and Regulations governing the control and sales of alcoholic beverages in Caroline County to promote and uphold the health, safety and general welfare of our community.

The Liquor Board meets the fourth Wednesday of every month beginning at 9:30 am at the Health & Public Services Bldg., 403 South 7th Street, Room 111, Denton, Maryland, with the exception of certain holidays. The Board issues all liquor licenses for Caroline County, approves/disapproves license transfers, issues “one day” liquor licenses for non profit organizations and renews all liquor licenses on an annual basis (March 1-March 31). In addition, the Board holds hearing on violations of the Alcoholic Beverages Article of the Annotated Code of Maryland or the Caroline County Liquor Board Rules and Regulations. The Board can impose monetary penalties, suspend or revoke licenses upon a finding of licensee misconduct resulting in a violation.
