The Boulder Responsible Association of Retailers is a partnership of community interests who meet regularly for the purpose of responsibly addressing alcohol issues facing the Boulder community. We are restaurant, bar and liquor store owners and managers who discuss best practices for the responsible sale and service of alcohol through training, collaboration and networking. striving to add value to our members by providing door staff training, fake ID training, free resources such as ID checking guides and member discounts for self-check programs and responsible vendor training, while asking in return, for members to agree to certain operational standards and mandatory attendance at monthly meetings.

While united in a commitment to the safe sale and service of alcohol, each chapter is designed to address the challenges that are unique to their respective communities. The businesses in each chapter are governed by different law enforcement agencies and government entities.

RAR Chapters are currently established in Larimer County, Weld County and Boulder County
