Bodega Market Seeks to Add Spirits to Beer/Wine Sales

Bodega Market

The Bodega Market has applied to the Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration (ABRA) for a substantial change to its license, from a Class B to a Class A. That means it would expand to sell spirits as well as the beer and wine already offered in the store. The Bodega has reportedly purchased the liquor license from Brothers Liquor, which earlier this year closed their store located next to the Bodega.

Expect the owners to come before the ANC to ask for community support. The ANC can vote to support or protest the application. ABRA also enables residents to protest a liquor license application: How To File a Protest.
