What is a Montana Alcohol Tax Bond?
Whether you are an owner of a brewery, winery, distillery; applying for an on-premise license or an off-premise license; a beer wholesaler or a wine distributor in Montana, the Alcohol, Tobacco, Tax, and Trade Bureau requires you to furnish a surety bond.
The bond is created to ensure the following:
- That the license applicant will pay the right amount of taxes

Obligee – the organization or government unit requiring the bond
Surety – the surety bond company who will act as a guarantor for the principal’s compliance with the bond conditions
