Before you grab that metal shaker and start mixing up martinis, you'll need to follow specific guidelines set up by the state to obtain your Wisconsin Bartender License.

What is a Bartender License?

This is an official permit administered by the local government allowing individuals to sell or serve alcohol in that area. Businesses as well as individuals are required to have a legal permit to sell or serve alcoholic beverages in that city.

Who Needs One?

Anyone over the age of 18 who will be selling or serving alcohol for on- or off-site consumption must possess a Wisconsin operator or bartender license. This includes business owners, managers, hosts, hostesses, servers, bartenders, sales clerks, and any other employee positions that will be handling alcohol sales.

The Role of Local Municipalities

Bartender licenses are administered by the local governing body for each town, city, or village. Completion of the application process for a bartender license includes passing a state-approved Responsible Beverage Server Course, completing a bartender license application, and submitting it to the city clerk. It's important to know which city or town you'll be working in to ensure you obtain a valid license to serve in that area, from that city clerk. It is at the discretion of the municipality as to whether your license will be issued, and the license you earn is only valid in the city in which it was issued.

How to Get a Wisconsin Bartender License

Your first step toward earning your bartender license in the city you plan to work in is the required completion of a Responsible Beverage Server Training course, like this one offered by Seller Server. The course must be state-approved and meet course material and length requirements. In addition, you must meet the following criteria:

  • You have been a Wisconsin resident for a minimum of 90 days prior to the application date.
  • You are over the age of 21.
  • You have submitted proof of your age.
  • You do not have an arrest or conviction on your record.

If you have a conviction for an alcohol–related offense, such as driving under the influence, you should contact your local municipality before taking a beverage training course. Each city has its own regulations when it comes to criminal offenses such as DUI, and you should find out if you are eligible to sell or serve alcohol legally.

Renewal of a bartender license is required every 2 years and requires you to retake a Responsible Beverage Training Course.
