Decisions of the Alcoholic Beverage Control Appeals Board

The Alcoholic Beverage Control Appeals Board makes its decisions available to the public in accordance with the California Public Records Act (Government Code section 6250 et seq.). Contact us if you would like a copy of an issued decision.

The Board strives to make this information as timely and complete as possible. However, decisions are posted when issued, and cases are not updated if circumstances change later. Cases may have been appealed to a higher court, and reversed, amended, or otherwise affected by subsequent action. Therefore, before citing an Appeals Board case, please check this list for possible subsequent action.

An Appeals Board decision usually includes an “Appendix” that sets forth the decision of the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control that is being appealed. If you would like a copy of a Department decision that is not included here, they may be obtained from the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control.
