7 Day On-Premises Beer & Wine ​Permit (PO7)

The 7 Day On-Premises Beer & Wine Permit authorizes the sale of beer and wine for consumption on the licensed premises, as well as to go. ​​ Because this license authorizes sales 7 days a week, it is only issued in counties and municipalities that have passed a referendum allowing Sunday beer and wine sales and have approved ​Sunday sales of alcoholic liquors​​​​.

License r​​enewal​

The 7 Day On-Premises Beer & Wine Permit must be renewed every two years. The renewal date is based on the county where your business operates, not the date when you applied for or received your license. Learn more about the renewal schedule​.

​​ ​This license does NOT authorize:
  • ​The sale or consumption of liquor​
  • The distilling, brewing, fermenting, blending, and bottling of any beverage containing alcohol at the licensed location​
  • Curbside sales or pickup, drive-through sales or pickup, or delivery of beer or wine to purchasers

After logging in, select the More tab, then click Apply for a New Alcohol Beverage License.​​

  • Non-refundable filing fee: $300 (Due at the time your application is submitted)
  • License fee: $2,200 (​Due every two years with li​cense renewal)
    • ​You must pay a prorated amount of the license fee after your 7 Day On-Premises Beer & Wine Permit application has been approved by the SCDOR.

License requirements ​​
  • You must first have a valid South Carolina Retail License. If you have not yet applied for a Retail License, get star​ted here.
  • You must submit a completed Application for Retail Beer, Wine, and Liquor (ABL-9​​​01), including all supplemental forms. See Required Forms below for more information. We recommend applying on MyDORWAY, but if submitting a paper copy of the application, make sure it’s signed and dated.

​120-Day Temporary License

If you have assumed control of a business that sells beer and wine under a valid 7 Day ​On-Premises Beer & Wine Permit, you must apply for your own permit. While your application is being considered by the SCDOR, you can apply for a 120-day temporary license. You must apply for the 120-day temporary license at the same time you submit the application for the permanent license. This license allows you to continue selling beer and wine for 120 days while your permanent license application is under SCDOR review.​
