If you plan to open a retail store, restaurant or bar that sells beer and wine over the counter or by the drink, you are required to purchase an Alcoholic Beverage License from the city of Sylvania and also from the state of Georgia.
Licensees must meet qualifications established by city ordinance. Application forms are available from the city clerk and a $130 application fee must be paid when the application is filed. Renewal applications must be received between November 1 and November 30 of each year. The annual package license fee is $1,000 and must be paid with the renewal application.
Pouring license fees are $250 for beer and $250 for wine or $500 for a combined beer and wine license and fees must be paid at time of application. License fees will be returned if the application is denied.
