There are different categories of liquor license that a New York business might want to apply for. The “OP” liquor license pertains to all different types of alcoholic beverages you might offer and means that beer can be sold by the business for consumption off-site. This is a very expansive category of liquor license, which means that the standard for businesses to meet to obtain this type of New York liquor license can be very high. Businesses are typically under much more rigorous scrutiny by community boards as well as the New York State Liquor Authority before securing this type of liquor license.
