The Facts - ABC Board Basics

In 1937 North Carolina's General Assembly created a uniform system of controlling and regulating the sale of distilled spirits. A State Board of Control - The North Carolina Alcoholic Beverage Control Commission was established to oversee the issuance of alcohol permits, develop liquor administrative codes, determine product selections and establish uniform prices throughout the State.
