The availability of annual on- and off-premise liquor licenses are determined by population and currently the City of Northampton is over its quota. Therefore, the city does not have any annual on- or off-premise liquor licenses available for issuance. The only way to obtain an annual liquor license is to purchase it on the open market.
Seasonal Liquor Licenses
Seasonal liquor licenses run from April 1 to January 15.
Seasonal wine & malt licenses are available. After demonstrated responsible use, the licensee can apply to convert the seasonal license to an annual license. The licensee is subject to a one time $5,000 conversion fee (installment payments available.)
