Most states and the federal government require bonds for alcohol if it has been manufactured for sale, shipped across country, warehoused or sold in a store or retail establishment, or served in a restaurant. Alcohol bonds can also be purposed to collect taxes, and can be a financial guarantee to comply with laws that are in place.

Businesses that make, sell, store, transport and sometimes serve alcohol must obtain bonds that are filed with various “obligee’s” or “owners.”  Examples include the State of California, the US Department of Tobacco and Alcohol, and the City of Athens, Alabama.  Each “obligee” has their own bond form, and the requirements vary.  Also, if you are starting a new business such as a distillery, brewery, winery or liquor package store that is regulated by the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), you can review an interactive tutorial for their requirements.
