Decisions of the Alcoholic Beverage Control Appeals Board

The Alcoholic Beverage Control Board makes its opinions available in accordance with the California Public Records Act and as a convenience to members of the public. The California Public Records Act (PRA), while protecting individuals’ rights to privacy, provides that access to information concerning the conduct of the people’s business is a fundamental and necessary right to every person in this State. (Government Code section 6250 et seq.)

We strive to make this information as timely and complete as possible. However, no representation or warranty is made that the information is current or accurate — it is provided on an “as is” basis. Cases may have been appealed to a higher court, and reversed, amended, or otherwise affected by subsequent action.
