State of NH Liquor License Laws:

  • Tidewater reserves the right to close a bar if liquor laws or Tidewater policies are violated. Additionally, we reserve the right to discontinue bar service entirely should patrons be unwilling to abide by our administration of liquor licensing laws.
  • We have a zero tolerance for minors consuming alcohol. Minors are the responsibility of the client signing the Event Order agreement.
  • Tidewater Catering Group’s managers, bartenders and servers are trained in responsible beverage service and if necessary will refuse service to anyone that, in their opinion, appears to be consuming more alcohol than is considered responsible and safe. We ask that you support us in meeting this responsibility.
