Posted on December 20, 2012


First of all, we would like to wish everyone a happy holiday season and a wonderful new year.  Thank you for making us the premier Michigan liquor law blog, and for taking advantage of MichiganLiquorLaw.com.  We look forward to another year of navigating the law and its changes.

A Few Reminders:

New Year’s Eve/New Year’s Day: For on-premise licensees – alcohol may be sold until 4:00am; patrons must consume all alcohol before 4:30am and leave the premises by 4:30am.  For off-premise licensees, normal sales hours apply.
