In the State of Colorado, obtaining a retail liquor license is a dual process beginning at the local level which requires review and approval from the Local Licensing Authority prior to review by the State Liquor Enforcement Division. The Local Licensing Authority holds monthly meetings at which applications are reviewed and then approved or denied.
