Alcoholic Beverage Control Appeals Board

The Alcoholic Beverage Control Appeals Board provides quasi-judicial administrative review of final decisions of the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control. The Board issues written decisions with orders affirming, reversing, and/or remanding Department decisions regarding: issuance of licenses, conditions placed upon a license, protests against a license being issued, and violations of law by a licensee. The Board’s mission is to provide all Californians who appeal with an efficient, timely, equitable, and approachable appeals process with fair and transparent legal review.
