"The Department of Consumer Protection safeguards the health and safety of Connecticut citizens by regulating all persons and firms involved in distributing, selling, and dispensing alcoholic liquor in order to prevent sales to minors and intoxicated persons, maintain product integrity, and ensure that licensed premises are safe and sanitary."

Trendowski & Allen has literally written the book on Liquor Law in the State of Connecticut.  Our book, Connecticut Liquor Statutes and Regulations, is now in its 9th edition and is designed to be an easy to use, quick reference guide for Connecticut permittees to the liquor laws in Connecticut.


Our Firm has expertise in all aspects of the liquor industry, a highly regulated industry in the State of Connecticut. The Liquor Control Division is the primary investigative arm of the Connecticut Liquor Control Commission.  The Liquor Control Division is charged with the responsibility of enforcing the Connecticut Liquor Control Act and its corresponding regulations. 


You are regulated by the Liquor Control Division if your business is one of the following:


  • A package store;
  • A grocery store with a beer permit;
  • A wine distributor, manufacturer or wholesaler; or
  • A caterer or private club that serves liquor.


If you have a claim involving a violation of the Connecticut Dram Shop Statute, sale of alcohol to a minor or the reckless sale of alcohol, you need counsel who understands the state liquor laws and how they interact with civil liability for personal injuries.
