When renewing your 2024 liquor license, please be aware of the following:

  1. Pay special attention to the area requesting last enforcement seminar attended. Licensees must attend a DLC approved seminar once every two years.

  4. Note the fees on the upper right corner of the application, payable in 2 checks (Town of Stowe & Vermont Department of Liquor Control). Liquor license fees are non-refundable.
