Alcoholic Beverage Permit

Alcoholic Beverage Approval


On August 9, 1977 the citizens of North Richland Hills approved alcohol sales for beer for off-premise consumption and on-premise mixed beverage sales. The citizens of North Richland Hills approved the sale of beer and wine for off-premise consumption on May 15, 2004. In 2013, during the 83rd(R) Texas Legislative Session, the Alcoholic Beverage Code was amended to authorize the issuance of wine and beer retailers permits and retail dealer's on-premise licenses in areas that have approved the sale of mixed beverages for on-premise consumption and approved the sale of wine and beer for off-premises consumption. This legislation allows restaurants in North Richland Hills the option to obtain a permit to sell only beer and wine for on-premise consumption with a food and beverage certificate instead of the previously required mixed beverage permit.
