Liquor control information for consumers

The Department of Consumer Protection protects Connecticut citizens by regulating all persons and businesses that distribute, sell, and serve alcoholic liquor in the state. This is done in order to prevent sales to minors and intoxicated persons, maintain product integrity, and ensure that the locations that sell or serve alcohol are safe and sanitary.
The Department enforces Title 30 (the Connecticut Liquor Control Act) and its corresponding regulations. The agency is also the primary investigative arm of the Connecticut Liquor Control Commission
