Municipalities in Wisconsin can issue a variety of beer and liquor licenses. Sturgeon Bay City Administrator Steve McNeil says there is sometimes confusion between the two that have been in the news recently in the city.
There is no limit to the number of off-premises or carry-out licenses that can be issued. That’s not the case for licenses for bars and restaurants.
The license that had been attached to the Neighborhood Pub will be held by the city while the ordinance dealing with how that license should be issued is reviewed by the city attorney and eventually the Common Council.
