TOWSON, MD—The Baltimore County Board of Liquor License Commissioners on Monday voted unanimously to resume “to-go” cocktails for carryout or delivery in Baltimore County, effective immediately.
Baltimore County’s temporary allowance of to-go cocktails ended on July 1 following the expiration of Governor Hogan’s State of Emergency.
Under legislation passed by the Maryland General Assembly earlier this year, local liquor licensing boards could adopt regulations to authorize the allowance of restaurants, bars, and taverns to sell and deliver to-go cocktails for two years.
Baltimore County Executive Johnny Olszewski issued the following statement after Monday’s 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.”
