G. Rapids, Weston bars face suspensions or fines

A Grand Rapids bar owner has apparently lost his fight about a state citation for after-hours
consumption, but language about the citation was changed.
Wild Side Brewing Company was cited Oct. 24 for after-hours consumption by the Ohio Investigative Unit.

Owner Nick Scott told the Sentinel-Tribune that the bar had closed at 11 p.m. Agents knocked on the door
at 11:45 p.m.
He said he and three other employees were cleaning. One person was counting money and he was rolling
silverware when there was a knock at the door.
Scott said he walked over and told the people outside that the bar was closed.
“They flashed badges and asked to come in,” he said. “They came over to where I was rolling silverware
and asked whose beer this was. I said it’s mine."
The bar was cited for after-hours consumption.
“The next day the press release says a patron was drinking in bars after hours,” Scott said. “(This is)
going to look like I’m no different than any speak-easy club.”
This is how the citation was worded in a media press release:
Wild Side Brewing Company LLC., known as Wild Side Brewing Company, Grand Rapids, received a citation for
after hours consumption – Rule 80. Agents observed a patron consuming beer after midnight. They also saw
a cold glass of beer on the bar.
“This was me drinking a beer as I close the bar at night,” Scott said. “Now it’s the perception of the
way they worded it. It’s an entirely different thing.”
The citation language was changed.
The official violation, from Monday’s press release about the outcome:
On or about Oct. 20, you, your agent(s), and/or employee(s), allowed on premises consumption of beer
(Narragansett Beer) between the hours of 11 p.m. and 5:30 a.m. in violation of Rule 4301:1-1-80(A)(2) of

The Liquor Control Commission is an adjudication and rule-making agency that oversees the alcohol
beverage industry. The mission of the Commission is to ensure compliance with the liquor laws and
regulations of the state of Ohio and to provide fair and impartial hearings for the protection of the
public and liquor permit holders. The Commission works in conjunction with the Ohio Department of
Commerce, Division of Liquor Control, and the Ohio Department of Public Safety, Investigative Unit.
The Ohio Investigative Unit is made up of fully-sworn, plainclothes peace officers responsible for
enforcing Ohio’s alcohol, tobacco, and food stamp fraud laws. Agents conduct compliance checks to ensure
the liquor permit premises are compliant with the Ohio Liquor Control Act. Agents also act on complaints
of illegal activity on liquor permit premises. In addition to providing the safety checks associated
with the COVID-19 directives, OIU agents continue to perform their normal compliance checks to ensure
the liquor permit premises are complying with the Ohio Liquor Control Act.
