Clash of the Ash in Quincy Gets Liquor License Revoked
An Irish pub in Quincy has had its liquor license stripped by the city after serving alcohol to a minor last month.
According to an article in the Patriot Ledger, the city has revoked all of Clash of the Ash's licenses (including its liquor license), though the Hancock Street watering hole is allowed to remain open pending an appeal. The post indicates that licensing board members made their decision based not only on a minor being served alcohol on St. Patrick's Day, but also on a couple of license suspensions over the past four years. The attorney for the owner of Clash of the Ash says that he will likely appeal the decision to the state Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission, with the process for that taking approximately three months. (The bar has five days to figure out whether it wants to appeal.)
[April 25 update: A new article in the Patriot Ledger states that the owner of Clash of the Ash has appealed the decision by the city of Quincy to revoke its license, which means that it will remain open for approximately three months from the time of the appeal (around the middle this month), which is the likely time period before the the state Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission hears the appeal.]
Clash of the Ash first opened back in 2008, taking over the space where Sarsfield's had once been, according to the Ledger.
The address for Clash of the Ash is 1464 Hancock Street, Quincy, MA, 02169.
