Steamboat Springs The Tugboat Grill & Pub is closed, serving a seven-day suspension of its liquor license from April 22 to 28.
The suspension is related to an employee who sold alcohol to a 16-year-old patron who was working for the Liquor Enforcement Division on Jan. 12, according to a stipulation and agreement between Tugboat and the Colorado Department of Revenue liquor enforcement division.
Ten of 49 businesses failed compliance checks conducted that weekend. Tugboat's owner Jim Beatty was given the option of paying a $3,693.33 fine by March 20 or taking the suspension, according to the agreement.
Beatty said the restaurant and bar will reopen Monday.
