The Massachusetts Liquor Control Act places a quota or limit on the number of on-premise and off-premise licenses a town can issue. That quota is based on the population of the community as determined by the most recent federal census. Although this changes with each state census, view the current remaining liquor license quota (PDF) for the Town of Bedford and Access the Town's alcohol policies (PDF).
