ABRA Update: ABC Board Overhauls Alcoholic Beverage Warning Sign

August 28, 2013

August 28, 2013 (Washington, DC) - In a press release distributed this morning, the District's Alcoholic Beverage Regulation Administration (ABRA) unveiled a new alcoholic beverage warning sign that will be posted in approximately 1,800 ABC licensed establishments in the District. Licensees are required to post the new sign in a conspicuous place on the licensed premises by Wednesday, Nov. 27.

The new sign allows ABRA to address several warnings and requirements for consuming alcoholic beverages in one posted notice and will also reduce the number of notices an ABC establishment is required to post on its premises.

ABRA collaborated with a committee comprised of representatives from local hotel, restaurant, nightclub, and merchant associations to design the new sign in accordance with District law.

Letters are being mailed to all ABC licensees with instructions for obtaining the new sign, which may be picked up at the ABRA office:

When: 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m., Monday-Friday

Where: Frank D. Reeves Municipal Center, 2000 14th St., NW, Suite 400 S., 4th floor

Licensees may contact ABRA with questions at 202-442-4423 or
