The establishment you wish to open will determine the liquor license that you need.  If you hope to open an eatery, then you will need either a Type 40 or Type 47 liquor license.  A Type 41 license permits that a restaurant serves beer and wine only.  On the other hand, a Type 47 liquor license allows the sale of beer, wine, and liquor.  If instead you seek to open a bar or club that does not sell food, then a Type 48 license is right up your alley.  This license permits the sale of alcoholic beverage in a business that serves guests aged twenty-one and up.  Remember that the consumption of the alcohol must happen on—and not off—the zone established on your zoning permit.

Maybe instead you would like to open a super market or gas station.  A business in this category requires a Type 20 or Type 21 liquor license.  A Type 20 liquor license allows the owner to sell wine and beer containers that are sealed and intended to be consumed offsite.  A Type 21 permit consents the sale of sealed alcohol containers in addition to beer and wine.
