ALGONQUIN – Three Algonquin businesses failed liquor compliance checks in February.
Bulldog Ale House, 1520 S. Randall Road; Cucina Bella, 220 S. Main St.; and Algonquin Tobacco & Liquor, 1117 S. Main St., did not pass checks, according to a news release from the Illinois Liquor Control Commission.
This is the second time Bulldog Ale House has failed a check.
Undercover and underage participants recruited from area high schools and colleges conducted 20 checks Feb. 21, according to the release.
The checks were run by the commission in conjunction with the Algonquin Police Department through the LC-13 pilot program. Under the program, teams randomly visit liquor stores, restaurants and bars to check for ongoing compliance with state laws to ensure no liquor is sold to people younger than age 21.
The Algonquin Liquor Control Commission will determine punishment for the businesses that were cited.
Algonquin police could not be reached for comment Thursday.
