Liquor licenses expire 1 year from the date of initial license issuance and must be renewed annually. Liquor license holders should receive a renewal notice from the Colorado Liquor Enforcement Division, by mail, at least 60 to 90 days prior to the expiration date of their existing license. If one does not receive the renewal application, contact the Colorado Liquor Enforcement Division. It is the license holder's responsibility to submit this application to the County Clerk's Office at least 45 days prior to the expiration date. The appropriate fees, both county and state, should be included with the application at this time.
Renewing a Liquor License
The liquor license renewal application will be sent to the licensee by the Colorado Liquor Enforcement Division approximately 60 to 90 days prior to the expiration date of the existing license.
Complete the renewal application, updating any changes on the renewal application.
If an establishment is leased, the lease must be valid for at least 1 year from the date the license is renewed. If the licensee's lease has been extended or modified in any way from the lease currently on file with the clerk's office, a copy of the new lease needs to be included with the renewal application.
Send both county and state fees with the application to the county at least 45 days prior to the expiration date.
Once the application is processed by both the county and the state, a county and state license will be sent to the license holder.
