Two Steamboat businesses fail alcohol compliance checks

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — Two Steamboat Springs businesses failed alcohol compliance checks Saturday during inspections.

Steamboat Springs Police Department Sgt. Evan Noble said the inspections were done by a Steamboat officer and two officers with the Colorado Liquor Enforcement Division.

They covertly used two people younger than 21 years old to test whether local businesses would sell alcohol to minors.

Noble said the officers checked the liquor stores and establishments that sell beer with an alcohol content of 3.2 percent.

Noble said Seventh Street Liquor and Central Park Liquor both failed the compliance checks.

The employees who sold the alcohol received citations.

The businesses will have to appear before the Local Liquor Licensing Authority, who will decide how to penalize the businesses.

The consequences typically include a fine or a temporary suspension of the business’s liquor license.
