New Jersey Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control Attorneys

New Jersey ABC Lawyers

The New Jersey Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control (“ABC”) is New Jersey’s regulatory branch charged with regulating the manufacture, transportation and sale of alcoholic beverages within the State. Prohibition, which took place from 1920 until 1933, was repealed through the Cullen-Harrison Act. Subsequently, the 21st Amendment to the US Constitution gave each state, New Jersey included, the right to determine whether to allow alcoholic beverages, and, if so, how to regulate them. New Jersey responded by enacting the Alcoholic Beverage Control Law, which is commonly known as Title 33 (since the Alcoholic Beverage Control Law is contained in the Revised Statutes as the 33rd title listed alphabetically by major subject matter and under the title of “Intoxicating Liquors”). These rules and laws were then under the authority of the State branch that is now known as the Attorney General’s Office, Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control. The Division of A.B.C. is headed by a Director, whose function is to supervise the manufacture, distribution and sale of alcoholic beverages in such a manner as to fulfill the public policy and legislative purpose of the Alcoholic Beverage Control Law.

All licenses and permits (exception: retail consumption and retail distribution licenses) are handled by the Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control. Regulation of the industry is overseen by the ABC and violations are investigation by the ABC’s Investigation Bureau and prosecuted by the ABC’s Enforcement Bureau. Furthermore, all municipal appeals are first filed with the Director of ABC for review and a formal hearing. For more information on the New Jersey Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control, call the ABC attorneys at Proetta & Oliver at (732) 858-5857.
