Does the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board Consider You to be a Person of Ill Repute?


As part of the biennial liquor license renewal process, the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board (“PLCB”) implements its “Nuisance Bar Program” to eliminate liquor licensed establishments that are deemed problematic. Following a licensee’s application for renewal of their liquor license, a licensee who is flagged by the nuisance bar program receives a letter from the PLCB indicating that a hearing must be conducted to determine whether the license should be renewed.

For many licensee's, if not successful at this hearing, their license to sell alcohol could be permanently revoked.
