Sidney City Beer Lottery


The Montana Department of Revenue, Liquor Licensing announces the availability of one (1) Montana Retail On-Premises Consumption Beer License(s) for the Sidney area as a result of the 2013 population estimate. The Sidney area includes the incorporated city/town of Sidney and that portion of Richland County situated within five (5) miles of the incorporated city/town limits.

In the case where more applications are received than there are available licenses a lottery drawing will occur. Any person intending to apply for one of the licenses is required to send a Lottery Application, Form LOTAPP. On this form please state the name of the applicant(s) including all potential owners, corporate stockholders, all partners of a partnership, and all members of a limited liability company. This application is due to the Department no later than 5:00 PM on the 2nd day of September, 2014. Late, unsigned or incomplete applications will not be considered.

Only one (1) Lottery Application will be accepted per person for this area. A “Person” as defined in the Administrative Rules of Montana is any individual, firm, partnership, limited liability company, corporation or association. When applying for a “floater” license you may only apply for one area per year.

If a lottery is necessary, the drawing will take place in Helena to determine who has the opportunity to apply for this license. Applicants will be notified of the date, time and place where the drawing will take place. Applicants do not need to be present to be chosen.

Those successful in the lottery drawing will be required to send a License Application within 30 days. The License Application needs to have identical ownership information as to what was provided on the Lottery Application.

All new licensees are required to meet the legal criteria of a license as outlined in the Montana Alcoholic Beverage Code and the Administrative Rules of Montana.
