14: Public Warehouse

Type 14 California Liquor License | Public Warehouse License

A public warehouse license is required for a warehouseman who provides warehouse service for alcoholic beverage licensees. This is distinguished from private warehouse permits, where a licensee has a leasehold or ownership interest and provides his/her own help at a premises other than that where licensed. The Act defines a public warehouse as “…any place licensed for the storage of, but not for sale of, alcohol, or alcoholic beverages, for the account of other licensees…” (Sections 23036 and 23375). A public warehouse is one of the types of premises to which imports may come to rest (Section 23661). It is also one of the types of premises from which a distilled spirits wholesaler may make deliveries if it is in the county where he/she is licensed (Section 23355.1).
