Liquor Control Division
The Department of Consumer Protection safeguards the health and safety of Connecticut citizens by regulating all persons and firms involved in distributing, selling, and dispensing alcoholic liquor in order to prevent sales to minors and intoxicated persons, maintain product integrity, and ensure that licensed premises are safe and sanitary.
Through the Liquor Control Division, the Department enforces the Connecticut Liquor Control Act and its corresponding regulations. The Division is the primary investigative arm of the Connecticut Liquor Control Commission
Liquor control agents regularly provide training to local and state police officers about enforcement of the Liquor Control Act and on strategies that discourage underage drinking.

Rules for Discounted Items
Connecticut General Statutes Section 30-68m, as amended by Public Act 12-17, allows the holder of a package store permit, grocery store beer permit, or druggist liquor permit to sell one beer item or one item of alcoholic liquor below cost each month, provided that item is not discounted more than 10%. (To view current discounts, see bulleted items, above.)
“Cost” for alcoholic liquor equals the posted bottle price from the wholesaler, plus any charge for shipping or delivery to the retailer’s place of business paid by the retailer. Most wholesalers include the delivery or shipping charge in the posted bottle price, but some do not. If you are unsure, consult with your wholesaler.
“Cost” for beer equals the lowest posted price during the month in which the retailer is selling, plus any charge for shipping or delivery to the retailer’s place of business paid by the retailer. Most wholesalers include the delivery or shipping charge in the posted bottle price, but some may not. If you are unsure, consult with your wholesaler.
Retailers who choose to discount one beer item or alcoholic liquor product must use the DCP online electronic posting system, Liquor Monthly Discounted Items for Retailers.

Post only one discounted price per month, after the 20th day of the preceding month and before the end of the 2nd day of the month in which the discounted price will be in effect.
Do not send postings of discounted items to the Department of Consumer Protection by regular mail or by facsimile as they will not be accepted. You must use the online posting system.
