Surviving an alcohol license inspection in Georgia can seem daunting. Most business owners have a hard enough time just making their target profits without the additional burden of deciphering the sometimes archaic alcohol laws, rules and regulations. To help, we’ve put together a checklist that highlights the most common issues you might face:
Licenses and Signage Must Be Conspicuously Posted: Applies to alcohol and business licenses, health permits, and other DOR specific signage (pregnancy warnings and the prohibition against sales to minors).
ID Checking: Compliance with alcohol (and tobacco) sales laws is often tested by law enforcement utilizing underage operatives who attempt to purchase the product either with their own Under 21 ID or by stating that they don’t have their ID. A sale by your employee will often result in a suspension/revocation of your alcohol license and significant fines.
