The National Alcohol Beverage Control Association (NABCA) was established in 1938 as the nationwide organization representing the interests of alcoholic beverage control states or monopoly sale states in the United States. NABCA's stated mission is to support those states and areas in which governmental agencies exclusively wholesale and/or retail some form or forms (beer, wine or distilled spirits) of alcohol beverages by supporting member jurisdictions in their efforts to protect public health and safety and ensure responsible and efficient systems for beverage alcohol distribution and sales.[1]

See Alcoholic beverage control state for a list of "control states" and their exact level of control.

Currently, control jurisdictions represent approximately 25.2% of the nation’s population and account for roughly 22% of distilled spirit sales and a significantly smaller percentage of beer and wine sales.


Stephanie O’Brien, chair of the Vermont Department of Liquor Control (VDLC), assumed the role of chair of the NABCA Board of Directors in May 2016. At the same time, Andrew J. Deloney of the Michigan Liquor Control Commission was voted chair-elect.
