The corn-fed, solid people of Nebraska may be friendly, but they mean business. And in a state that takes businesses as seriously as Nebraska, you can expect the licenses and permits to be relatively few and straightforward. Nebraska keeps things simple -- clear forms and processes. Less regulation than most West-Coast or Northeastern states. Plain licensing for plains people.
In Nebraska, alcohol Distributors sell alcoholic beverages to retail establishments. Accordingly, states give them separate and generally lower license fees than alcohol retailers who sell or serve directly to the public. Distributors also require federal licensing and may need local business licenses and wholesale permits.
