MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - A veteran of the hospitality industry is going to become the next commissioner of Vermont’s Department of Liquor Control.

Patrick Delaney will begin work on Feb. 1.

Delaney has worked in the hospitality and alcoholic beverage industry, including 20 years running what became the largest wine brokerage in Utah.

Delaney is a native of the state of Washington. He graduated from Washington State University with a degree in hotel and restaurant administration.

The Vermont Department of Liquor Control contracts with 80 agents across the state who sell spirits through their retail stores. The department collects more than $23 million in taxes a year for the general fund.
