To obtain a Beverage Operator’s License, commonly called a “Bartender’s License”, you must first enroll in or complete a Responsible Beverage Operator’s course. These courses are offered by the area technical schools. If you prefer, you can take an online course through one of the courses approved by Wisconsin Department of Revenue.
Bring your certificate of completion to the City Clerk’s office, where you will be asked to complete an application. Prior to license issuance, the Police Department will process a background check on the applicant. Police Department approval is required for all Bartenders’ Licenses. Licenses all expire on June 30th. License fees are $15 for a one year license and $25 for a two year license.
