SPRINGFIELD – Two Godfrey businesses were cited for violations during a compliance check last month by the Illinois Liquor Control Commission.
According to a press release, Our Cliffside Inn, 4922 Clifton Terrace Road; and Beer Barrel Pub, 7205 Montclair Ave., were cited for selling alcohol to minors.
High school and college-age volunteers randomly visit liquor stores, restaurants and bars in communities throughout the state to check for compliance with state laws mandating that no liquor is sold to customer younger than 21. Liquor commission agents also work with local and state law enforcement agents to focus on communities with a high incidence of underage liquor sales.
The compliance checks visited 364 businesses statewide; 64 were cited for violations. Eighty-two percent of licensees refused to serve underage customers.
