Beginning January 1, 2024, applications for all types of liquor permits in Connecticut must be electronically filed online with the Department of Consumer Protection – Liquor Division (“Liquor Division”). This includes all supplemental forms, documents and information required for all classes of permit applications.

Local municipal signatures, such as town clerk, zoning and fire marshal, will still be required for applications. The Liquor Division created a new form for applicants to use and upload with those signatures as part of the on-line application process.

The Liquor Division has also created a “permit selector quiz” that identifies all on- and off-premises permits to help applicants select the permit that best suits their needs.
