Liquor Control Division
Please be advised that due to precautions being taken to protect our staff, there will be a substantial delay in reviewing all liquor applications which are received by regular mail, including express mail. We are not accepting applications submitted in person. We will likely have a very limited staff on site, if any, and in-person conferences and meetings are being significantly impacted. Please do not attempt to enter the building and meet with our staff unless and until you have a confirmed appointment with a specific person.
If you have questions concerning your permit application and its status, please verify it online at https://elicense.ct.gov using your assigned credential number.
Our general telephone number is (860) 713-6200. You may leave a message and our staff will respond. There may be a delay. Please provide a name and return phone number and a general description on the nature of your inquiry.
Email inquiries, including complaints, may also be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation as we move forward together in this challenging atmosphere.
