BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - The Burlington Country Club has been fined by the Vermont Liquor Control Board after an investigation revealed members were served alcohol after hours during an illegal poker game.

The Burlington Free Press reports (https://bfpne.ws/1NsA2KJ ) the club’s liquor license has also been suspended for a weekend in April 2016 after officials admitted to violating two liquor control regulations.

Establishments are required by state law to not serve alcohol past 2 a.m. Liquor license holders must obtain a permit from the Liquor Control Board to host gambling.

Department of Liquor Control Investigator Matthew Gonyo says he witnessed club members get served by a bartender after hours and gamble over the summer.

The club’s general manager denies that cash changed hands during the poker game and blamed the alcohol violation on the bartender.
