Continuing Care Retirement Community
The MDOR has opened up a new limited all-beverage license for CCRCs. There are a few qualifications in order to obtain one of these licenses, but if you qualify then why not get one.
The qualifications are as follows:
· CCRCs must be licensed by the DPHHS;
· Provide independent living and a graduated level of care for individuals 55 years of age or older;
· Must have a central dining area where the alcoholic beverages will be served or purchased to be only consumed on the licened premises; and
· The residential facility must be on one campus and under the same operator.
The CCRC License allows you to:
- Serve all alcoholic beverages including distilled spirits, wine, and beer for on-premises consumption;
- Serve alcoholic beverages within the hours of 11:00 am to 8:00 p.m.; and
- Serve alcoholic beverages only to the residents and their guests of the continuing care retirement community.
The CCRC License does not allow you to:
- Apply for a gambling license;
- You cannot apply for a catering endorsement; and
- You cannot sell alcoholic beverages for off-premises consumption / package sales.
Does this sound like a license that you could use? If so, call a lawyer, like a liquor licensing lawyer in Belgrade, MT from Silverman Law Office. They have attorneys and paralegals that deal especially in liquor laws and can help you through the licensing process.
