Implementing Responsible Beverage Service


Preventing Others from Purchasing Alcohol for Minors

Minors themselves are not your only issue; you must also be aware of any individual who is trying to purchase alcohol for minors to consume. This is against the law. If any alcohol is given to a minor by a person of age, immediately refuse service to the entire group and remove the alcohol from the table.

Observe and ID everyone at a table at which customers appear to be close to or under the age of 19. If you are not sure of someone's age, ask for proof. If you are still unsure, the best policy is to err on the side of caution and refuse service. Guests must provide a suitable proof of age or accept your decision.
