Beer, Wine & Liquor Stores in California
California has relatively relaxed regulation when it comes to the distribution of alcohol. Since the state enables several different types of businesses to sell beer, wine and liquor, the industry is much more fragmented than other states. Overall, industry growth has been healthy. Per capita alcohol consumption in California and per capita disposable income in California have both been increasing steadily over the past five years. Large-scale operators have started to carve out greater market share as small independent operators have been forced to close down. Millennials being one of the largest age demographics, as more millennials reach the legal drinking age, industry revenue is expected to grow over the five years to 2022.
Operators in this industry include retail stores specifically licensed to sell alcoholic beverages for off-premises consumption. This industry excludes grocery stores, wholesalers, convenience stores and gas stations.
