Liquor license revoked at The Grail

Print Article

HUETTER - The Alcohol Beverage Control division of the Idaho State Police has revoked The Grail's liquor license for selling alcohol during a strip show in April.

The ABC issued a press release Friday saying The Grail Restaurant and Multipurpose Arena in Kootenai County "did not contest the charges brought for violations of the prohibited acts provision of the Idaho Liquor Act."

"The license revocation stems from an investigation into an event advertised as 'The Ultimate Male Review' at The Grail on April 27," the release said. "During the course of the event there were numerous violations of Idaho law that prohibits nudity and simulated sex acts in an establishment licensed to sell beer, wine or alcohol."

Although the license revocation was a result of this investigation, the ABC said The Grail has also had numerous violations over the course of the 13 years it has had its liquor license. Those violations were for service to underage persons and allowing minors to loiter on a licensed premise, according to the release.

A hearing on the case was held on Dec. 10 and according to the ABC The Grail did not present a case and confessed judgment to the charges.

The revocation of the license prohibits The Grail from dispensing alcoholic beverages as of Jan. 8.

No one at The Grail could be reached for comment late Friday afternoon.
