TOWSON, MD—The Baltimore County Board of Liquor License Commissioners on Wednesday announced that the county’s temporary allowance of “to-go” cocktails for carryout or delivery will end following the expiration of Governor Hogan’s State of Emergency on July 1, 2021.
The Baltimore County Board of Liquor License Commissioners will hold a hearing at 1 p.m. on July 12 in Room 104 of the Jefferson Building (105 W Chesapeake Ave, Towson, MD 21204) to consider extending “to-go” cocktails privileges.
County Executive Johnny Olszewski on Wednesday issued the following statement in support of resuming “to-go” cocktails:
“As we continue to plan our post-pandemic recovery, we should support the efforts of our small businesses to innovate and diversify their offerings,” Olszewski said. “We’re proud to have already taken a number of steps to support our bars and restaurants. Continuing ‘to-go’ cocktails would be another commonsense step to drive the continued recovery of this hard-hit industry.”
In March 2021, Olszewski announced that the County would waive fees for liquor license holders for the current year to provide additional relief for license holders that have seen reduced revenues as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
