Cinder Ridge will be applying for a liquor license now that the amended ordinance has been approved. A special class-H was created, allowing for liquor sales to be consumed on the course and in the clubhouse.
Also included in the ordinance is a D-1 class allowing sale of beer and wine in restaurants. No establishments were granted licenses, individual businesses will have to apply separately for consideration.
Noticeably absent from the amendment was any mention of the B-1 class to allow retail locations, such as Berkot’s, to sell beer and wine. The local liquor stores had previously protested allowing competition into the marketplace and have seemingly won another victory over the consumers of Wilmington, but don’t forget to shop local!
