Off-Sale Alcohol Program

On December 6, 2005, the City Council adopted amendments to Title 6 and Title 20 of the San José Municipal Code to regulate the sale of alcoholic beverages that are taken off the premises. An inspection program was created to ensure that retailers maintain their businesses in a responsible manner that meets San José Municipal Code (SJMC) requirements and does not negatively impact neighborhoods.

Permits & Inspections

The Off-Sale Alcohol (OSA) permit must be renewed annually. Payment may be made online following the steps in the guide.

Retailers can prepare for inspections by reviewing the OSA Inspection Guide.
