By now you should have received your annual fee notice.
If you currently hold a licence and have not received your fee notice, please check your account in the OLGR Client portal secure.olgr.qld.gov.au/portal for the details of the notice or contact our Licensing staff on 1300 072 322.
From OLGR for Artisan Producers / Craft Brewers at Promotional Events:
We agree that the sale and supply of samples, and the sale and supply of takeaway liquor, up to the set legislative limits (e.g. 150ml sample volume and 9L total volume) is authorised during the hours of the promotional event which may be prior to 10am (as an example).
RSAPro have sought urgent confirmation from OLGR that meals licenses across Queensland are permitted to sell takeaway Liquor on Good Friday via the TLA below.
Section 235E of the Liquor Act supports conflict with existing provisions of the Act and allowing this authority would support thousands of Queensland businesses during this difficult lock down and Easter trading period.
We have asked that clarification of a matching TLA also be issued to support cafes, caterers and Hotels over this Easter period also.
We note that bar, community other and restricted liquor permits also have a similar, current TLA.
Whether intentional or otherwise this is allowed at this time and withdrawing it would have huge political implications.
Watch this space!
This one warms my heart! Congratulations to the co-op of local bushies at Morven who almost 4 1/2 years after their local pub was destroyed by fire have joined forces to save the fabric of their town. Sadleir’s Waterhole Hotel license was re-issued today and those first beers look damn tasty!! Chalk one up for the good guys and best wishes from all of us at RSAPro!!

You’ve hit the absolute Bullseye Daffyd Evans! Congratulations!! Brisbane just do yourself a favour and book a booth with your mates!!

Congratulations to the legends at Mo's Desert Clubhouse on finally being granted your liquor license! Three legends have chipped away at overbearing bureaucracy for over 18 months to deliver an amazing creative arts space for the southern Gold Coast! Sold out reopening night! Huge love to Christian, Emilia & Kim for smashing through the barriers of small business! We don’t need another hero! We’ve got three! Wish I could be there!! Emilia Lorena

Some unexpected praise for simply fighting the good fight for common sense to prevail! Thanks to Scott Hutchinson & John Collins and the team for building #fortitudemusichall as an instantly iconic venue worthy of the exemption in the first place! #livemusiclivesinbrisbane #qmusic
More than 50 bars, cafes and restaurants in West End were raided by Fairwork Ombudsman Investigators yesterday after more than 100 anonymous complaints about underpayment of staff. Between this and the recent George Calombaris investigations where more than $7.8 million was required to be back payed with an associated $200,000 “contrition payment” should leave the hospitality industry having little doubt that the days of cash payments and paying under the award will ultimately bite you hard in the end. Modernize and ensure compliance using a Brisbane based leading software solution that also incorporates some great Liquor Compliance elements. Worth your time to at least take a look! Costs heaps less than you might think.
In an awesome day for Queensland & Fortitude Valley I got to make the happy phone calls as two landmark venues received advice of their Provisional Liquor License Approvals within 10minutes of each other! If ever there was an excuse for a collaboration brew this is it! Some days are diamonds! #RSAPro #fortitudemusichall #stoneandwood Congrats
