The Alaska Alcohol & Marijuana Control Office (AMCO) issues licenses and permits for those in the state's alcohol industry. Brewers, distillers, bottlers, jobbers, wholesalers, and manufacturers of alcoholic beverages must apply with AMCO in order to do business in the state. Applicants must provide a surety bond as a part of licensing.
License applications must be submitted to AMCO and approved by the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board, local government, and other state agencies. Applicants for an alcoholic beverage license must include:
A surety bond guarantees that the license holder will pay all alcoholic beverages and/or taxes, penalties, and interest due to the State of Alaska.
A license can be revoked if an applicant fails to obtain or keep a surety bond. Those who remain in compliance for three consecutive calendar years and have paid all monthly taxes are not required to maintain a bond.
The premium you pay for a $25,000 Alaska Alcoholic Beverage Surety Bond starts at $250 with good credit. Contact our Surety Bond Specialists to get bonded quickly.
The process to obtain an Alaska Alcoholic Beverage license can take three to six months.
