Holders of Alcoholic Beverage Licenses in Baltimore City and Community Residents

All holders of alcoholic beverage licenses in Baltimore City must file a renewal application between March 1 and March 31of every year at the Board’s office at 1 N. Charles Street, Suite 1500. A $50 processing fee must be paid at the time the renewal application is filed and applications filed after March 31st will be subject to a $50 per day penalty. Even if a licensee has been notified of a hold on his or her renewal license, the renewal application must still be filed by March 31st.

By Law, a protest against the renewal of a license must be filed at least 30 days before the license expires on April 30th. All protests must be received at the Board’s office by 4 p.m. on March 31st and must be signed by not less than ten residents, commercial tenants (who are not holders or applicants for any liquor license), or real estate owners in the immediate vicinity where the licensed place of business is located. Protests must be based on specific complaints as to the operation of the establishment. Renewal Forms and Information
