Q1:  Why protest beer and wine license applications?

A1:  Under the ABC's rules, only one "on sale" (restaurant) license is supposed to be allowed for each (approx.) 1000 residents.  Hermosa Beach is officially "overconcentrated" with licenses - more than threefold.  When an applicant seeks to add a brand new license (either beer & wine or hard liquor) which will add to that overconcentration, they must convince the ABC that licensing the new premises will serve the "public convenience or necessity" (PCN).  However, if the applicant is changing an existing beer and wine license to hard liquor, that change will not add to the overconcentration of licenses, so they do not have to meet the PCN requirement.
