|Welcome and thank you for visiting the License Services website!
License Services is the division within the Oregon Liquor Control Commission responsible for issuing and renewing licenses to Oregon businesses involved in the manufacture, distribution, and retail sale of alcoholic beverages. License Services also issues Alcohol Service Permits to employees of licensed businesses whose job is to mix, sell, and/or serve alcoholic beverages by the glass to on-premises patrons.
The License Services Division employs approximately 45 license investigators, technical, and administrative staff in 5 regional offices (Portland, Salem, Eugene, Medford, Bend) and oversees the issuance and renewal of over 14,000 annual liquor licenses, 5000+ temporary special event licenses (per year), and over 130,000 alcohol service permits.
It is our division's mission to issue licenses and permits quickly, accurately, and consistently to businesses and employees across the state. We are proud of our work. By licensing safe and responsible businesses, the OLCC plays a important role in Oregon's economic growth and vitality.
I would love to hear how we are doing. Please call or email me anytime!
