Liquor Licenses

Anyone who manufactures, distributes or sells alcoholic beverages in Oregon must be licensed by the Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC). Under Oregon Law, local governments are required to make recommendations on state applications for liquor licenses for businesses located within their jurisdiction. In Washington County, businesses seeking liquor licenses that are located in the unincorporated area of the county must receive the County's recommendation before the applications can proceed.

You must submit your application with the Oregon Liquor License Office before we review your application. If you have not submitted your application with them and need to, please contact them here:
