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 Ohio Administrative Code (“limitation of hours for on premises sales and consumption”).

At the hearing, a denial was entered on behalf of the permit holder. Based on the evidence presented, the commission found the permit holder in violation.

The commission issued a three-day suspension beginning at noon, March 22, but gave the permit holder the option to pay a financial forfeiture in the amount of $300 in lieu of serving the suspension.

According to its website, Wild Side is closed on Monday. A message was left for comment.

A Weston bar was also ordered to pay a fine or serve a suspension.

Westwood Endeavors LLC, 13217 Main St. and patio, was accused of allowing on- premises consumption of beer on Sept. 18 between the hours of 11 p.m. and 5:30 a.m. in violation of Rule 4301:1-1-80(A)(2) of the Ohio Administrative Code (“limitation of hours for on-premises sales and consumption”).
