The ABCA in Virginia is responsible for regulating the sale of alcohol. The ABC regulates the distribution and sale of hard liquor. The state’s General Assembly has authority over liquor sales.

However, the alcohol business in rural areas is still regulated by the General Assembly. A liquor retailer can sell wine, beer, and other alcoholic beverages in multiple locations, but it must have an ABC license to sell these products. While ABC regulates alcohol sales, the Virginia government is also in charge of determining the hours and brands sold in ABC stores.
