Alcohol Inspections

During the evening hours of Friday, September 20, Investigators with the Nebraska State Patrol (NSP), conducted alcohol inspections in Cherry and Brown Counties.

A total of 20 businesses were inspected. Six of those businesses sold alcohol to a minor for a non-compliance rate of 30%. All of the businesses checked the minor’s ID, except for one.

The businesses that failed the inspections were:

Speedee Mart #2820 – Ainsworth (checked ID, sold to minor)

Canyon Creek Bar & Grill – Ainsworth (checked ID, sold to minor)

J’s Keggers – Ainsworth (checked ID, sold to minor)

L Bow Room – Johnstown (did not check ID, sold to minor)

Peppermill & E.K. Lounge – Valentine (checked ID, sold to minor)

Valentine Conoco – Valentine (checked ID, sold to minor)

Businesses that sell alcohol to a minor are referred to the Nebraska Liquor Control Commission. Clerks who sell alcohol to a minor are cited for procuring alcohol for a minor.

This project was supported by the North Central District Health Department and paid for by Drug Free Communities Grant SP02088-04 and Partnership for Success Grant #H79SP080988.

The businesses inspected included liquor stores, convenience stores, restaurants, and bars.
