Who needs an OLCC Alcohol Service Permit?

Oregon law requires you to have a service permit if you work at a business with a liquor license that allows customers to drink on the premises and you mix, serve, or sell alcohol in any manner. Managers who supervise employees who mix, serve, or sell alcohol must also have a service permit. Store clerks/ employees responsible for filling growlers at an off-premises licensed business are also required to have a valid service permit. Employees of a licensed business must not sell or serve alcohol without a valid service permit.
