Applications for alcoholic beverage licenses are available from the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC). The local office is located at 6450 Concord Road, Beaumont, Texas 77708. You may reach that office at (409) 898-3116. You may contact TABC in Austin at P.O. Box 13127, Austin, Texas 78711-3127.
