Responsible Alcohol Selling Classes


With the objective to help ensure sellers of alcohol are responsibly minimizing risks of selling to minors or intoxicated customers, the City of Branson is hosting Responsible Alcohol Selling classes May 2 and June 6, 2024.  

  •  Classes will begin at 2:30 p.m. and take approximately two hours on May 2 and June 6. 

  •  The location of the classes is Branson City Hall, Council Chambers.

  •  The training is conducted by the Community Partnership of the Ozarks. 

  •  Classes are offered at no cost.

  •  Participants are not required to register for the class.

  •  Please arrive 15 minutes early to allow plenty of time for registration.


“It is important that people who own, operate and work in businesses that sell alcohol, or those in the process of obtaining a liquor license, attend this free training,” said City of Branson License Compliance Manager, Matthew Henry.  


Under City code, liquor license holders are required to provide alcohol education programs for all managers, servers, bartenders and cashiers that sell alcoholic beverages within 60 days of their hire date and every two years thereafter. 


The training topics include state and local alcohol laws, how to properly check IDs, how to detect fake IDs, best practices for avoiding illegal sale/service of alcohol and the importance of compliance checks. 

“We want to help educate business owners and their staff members to understand that following these laws is critical to operations, and repercussions for missteps, even those accidental or due to carelessness, can be severe,” said Henry. “We want to do all we can to assist responsible sellers of alcohol to minimize the risks of selling to those under the age of 21 and intoxicated buyers.” 

Although this class is designed to fulfill the training requirements for the City of Branson, servers and cashiers from neighboring communities are also welcome to attend. For more information:
