- You must be of legal drinking age (21).
- You must have resided continuously in Wisconsin for at least 90 days prior to the application date.
- You must have a seller's permit issued by the Department of Revenue. Call (608) 266-2776.
- You must have completed a responsible beverage server training course. Call your local Vocational, Technical and Adult Education (VTAE) school, or see "Training" on the Department of Revenue web site.

- Can I get a liquor license if I have a criminal record? That will largely be up to the municipality to determine. A criminal record is not an automatic bar to getting a license. The municipality must determine whether the violation is something related to the business of selling alcohol beverages. Violations such as selling liquor without a license, tax evasion, etc., are closely related to this business and might well be a bar to licensing. A record of auto theft may not. The municipality will weigh the nature of the violation, the time that has elapsed since the violation, the person's overall record in the community, etc., in making that determination.

You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo
