ABC Suspends the License of the 1849 Brewing Company in Grass Valley

The suspension order prohibits alcohol sales for the next 45 days

Nevada County – On October 30, 2020, agents of the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) posted a Notice of Suspension at the 1849 Brewing Company, located at 468 Sutton Way in Grass Valley, for operating a Disorderly Premises. Alcohol sales at the premises are immediately prohibited and will not be allowed for the next 45 days.

The suspension is the result of an investigation conducted by the ABC with assistance from the Grass Valley Police Department related to disorderly activity as defined by California Business and Professions Code Section 25601.

ABC filed an accusation against the business and accused it of operating a Disorderly Premises because of numerous calls for service between May 27, 2019 and September 30, 2020 to address reported crimes at the location such as public drunkenness, fights, assaults, reports of illegal drugs, and public urination. The location is also accused of violating noise conditions on its premises, thus affecting the nearby neighborhood.

The owners of 1849 Brewing Company signed a stipulation and waiver agreement and have accepted ABC’s penalty of a 45-day suspension.

ABC protects communities through education, prevention, and enforcement programs designed to increase compliance with California’s alcoholic beverage laws.

ABC encourages licensees to sign up for ABC’s Licensee Education on Alcohol and Drugs (LEAD) training free of charge. Licensees and their employees can now take the training online. To learn more about ABC enforcement and prevention programs that can help increase public safety, visit ABC.

ABC is a Department of the Business, Consumer Services and Housing Agency.
