Virginia ABC grants a range of privileges, or "licenses," to individuals, groups and businesses enabling the manufacture, distribution, selling and serving of alcoholic beverages in the Commonwealth. Holders of these privileges are commonly called “licensees.”
The licensee community is one of Virginia ABC’s principal partners. This section provides resources and tools for obtaining a license as well as supporting retail licensees and manufacturers and wholesalers complying with the laws and regulations that govern the sale and distribution of alcohol in the Commonwealth.
Use our online licensee search to find retail and banquet licensees by license number and other criteria.
