Liquor Licensing

Overview
Licensing new businesses to sell / serve alcoholic beverages in the State of Colorado is a two-tier process requiring approval from two liquor licensing authorities - both the city and the State of Colorado.  Locally, the City of Montrose City Clerk's Office facilitates this process and serves and the liaison between the license applicant and both liquor licensing authorities.

Please contact the City Clerk's Office to discuss the liquor licensing process or use the link below to get started with the application process.

The Liquor License Application packet contains general liquor / beer licensing information and guidelines, as well as all the state and local forms necessary to apply for such licenses.

Information on applying for a special events permit is also available online or from the City Clerk's Office.
