Local Counties Have High Number of Liquor Licenses

Bring on the beer! Out of every 265 people in the Illinois Valley, there is at least one active liquor license - and in La Salle County, 210 of their 431 total liquor licenses are tied to video gaming.

Many liquor licenses are tied to video gaming machines, as business owners have to have an on-premises consumption license if they want to have video gaming machines, with the exception of truck stops.
