Local Liquor Licensing Authority

Obtaining a liquor license in the City of Golden is a privilege, not a right. Liquor licenses are issued by the State and the City of Golden. The City cannot issue the local license until the State has reviewed and approved the application and issued the State license. Please contact the City Clerk’s office for more information about this process.

The Board is comprised of a Hearing Officer who is appointed by City Council.

To contact the Hearing Officer, call the City Clerk’s Office at (303) 384-8015, or write to Liquor Licensing Authority Board, 911 10th Street, Golden, CO 80401.
