Winning bids and bidders are posted to the PLCB restaurant license auction web page .

Top bidders have 14 days from the date of each Notice of Selection to remit full bid payment to the PLCB.

If bid payment is not received within two weeks of auction award, the second-highest bidder will have opportunity to remit their full bid payment.

Once bid payment is received, each auction winner has six months to file a license application with the PLCB.

Bids will be held in escrow by the PLCB, pending approval of the license application.

Statewide, about 1,200 licenses that have expired since 2000 will be made available through auctions in the coming months and years.

The PLCB regulates the distribution of beverage alcohol in Pennsylvania, operates more than 600 wine and spirits stores statewide, and licenses 20,000 alcohol producers, retailers, and handlers.
