Any alcohol applications that include liquor must be investigated by an alcohol agent, which usually takes 30 to 45 days. You should submit your State alcohol application at the same time you submit your application for your local license. This will usually speed up the process. For more information on liquor applications contact TSD-alcohol-tobacco-lic@dor.ga.gov
