TOWSON — The Baltimore County Board of Liquor License Commissioners voted unanimously on July 12 to resume “to-go” cocktails for carryout or delivery in Baltimore County, effective immediately, according to a press release.
Baltimore County’s temporary allowance for establishments to sell to-go cocktails ended on July 1 following the expiration of Governor Hogan’s State of Emergency. Local liquor licensing boards are authorized to adopt regulations to allow bars and restaurants to serve to-go cocktails, under legislation enacted by the Maryland General Assembly earlier this year.
Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski released the following statement regarding the vote: “As we continue our recovery, we must do all we can to help our small businesses innovate and diversify their operations,” Olszewski said. “This is another commonsense step to support the continued recovery of this hard-hit industry and we applaud today’s decision.”
