Renew a Liquor License

Each year, the OLCC will send a letter to liquor license holders with renewal information. Follow the instructions in your letter to renew your annual liquor license with both the OLCC and the City of Portland by the named deadline. The City will not accept renewal payments submitted more than three months in advance of the license expiration date.

Fee: $35
