SEASIDE HEIGHTS – The New Jersey Alcohol and Beverage Commission (ABC) has been performing random sweeps across the state to go after businesses with liquor licenses in violation of Murphy’s Law. Murphy’s Law is a series of executive orders that restrict indoor dining in restaurants and bars throughout the state.
Bar service remains shut down under Governor Murphy and capacity limits and social distancing rules are enforced under Murphy’s Law.
This week, the ABC swept through the Jersey Shore, citing businesses in Toms River, Seaside Heights and Berkeley Township.
NJ State Police Superintendent Pat Callahan reported the following businesses had been cited for Murphy’s Law compliance violations, but did not elaborate on those violations.
“In the past few days, ABC went out and did compliance checks and right now, the following establishments were under review for apparent violations observed by the ABC,” Callahan said. “In Ocean County, Battle River Brewing in Tom’s River; Eby’s in Berkeley Township; Beachcomer Bar in Seaside Heights; Hemmingway’s Cafe also in Seaside Heights; the Tower Tavern in Westville, which is in Gloucester.”
The ABC performs random sweeps each week, targeting two different counties each day. The administration uses the ABC because those businesses are more likely to comply with a threat of losing their liquor license or a temporary suspension of their license hanging over their heads.
