Alcohol Beverage Licenses for Establishments

The State of Wisconsin requires all persons who vend, sell, deal or traffic intoxicating liquors or fermented malt beverages to be licensed with their local government. The purpose of alcohol licensing in the State of Wisconsin is to better ensure the public health and welfare of Wisconsin residents. 

As a result, anyone who vends, sells, deals or traffics any alcoholic beverages within Village limits, in any amount, is required to first obtain a license from the Village of McFarland. (See Wisconsin Statutes §125 and Title 7, Chapter 2 of the Village Code of Ordinances)

Important Dates to Remember:

June 30 – Last day for licenses to be picked up and paid for by 4:00 p.m. at the Village Hall/Administration Office.

July 1 – New licensing year officially begins. All licenses issued for the previous license year are now expired.
