The Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission is an agency under the Office of the State Treasurer and Receiver General Deborah B. Goldberg. It is our overall objective to provide uniform control over the sale, purchase, transportation, manufacture, and possession of alcoholic beverages in the state. You will find our Web Site to be user friendly, easy to operate, and most importantly, organized to provide the information you are seeking.


The ABCC is excited to announce the launch of our new eLicensing system for Retail Licenses in select towns. In order to implement these changes, ePLACE will be unavailable from 5:00pm on Thursday, August 25th through 9:00am on Monday, August 29th. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused by this disruption and appreciate your understanding.
