BLAIRSTOWN TOWNSHIP, NJ (Warren County) – Billings, Inc. the entity that holds the liquor license for the Post Time Pub, located 25 Main Street in Blairstown Township, agreed to accept a 45-day license suspension beginning April 17, pending final resolution of the New Jersey Alcohol Beverage Control charges seeking to revoke the pub’s liquor license for twice violating emergency orders limiting bars and restaurants to take-out service only, Attorney General Gurbir Grewal said Friday.
The charges filed by ABC on April 6 allege the licensee placed the public in imminent danger by serving alcoholic beverages for on-premise consumption on March 27 and April 2, Grewal said.
The charges were filed by ABC after the business was twice issued charges and flouted local law enforcement efforts. The suspension is in the nature of a temporary restraint of Billings, Inc.’s privilege to sell alcohol during the COVID-19 public health emergency, Grewal said.
“As the merits of the charges have not been determined and the emergency is continuing to evolve, ABC’s Enforcement Bureau may seek to extend the suspension and Billings, Inc. may seek to lift or modify the suspension,” Grewal said.
