California liquor license laws are very strict regarding the sales of alcohol to individuals who are obviously intoxicated. This is most commonly thought of as an issue in a bar where a patron has become overly intoxicated. However, the law also applies to retail stores.
Failure to comply with this law can result in the suspension of your California liquor license for 15 days for your first offense and up to a 45 day suspension for multiple violations within a three year period. The California ABC takes this matter very seriously so please make sure your employees are properly trained and diligent about their alcoholic beverage sales.
