WARSAW — Tippy Creek Winery, Leesburg, was approved for a beer retailer permit during a Kosciusko County Alcohol and Tobacco Commission virtual meeting on Thursday, June 4.
Lori and Daniel Richcreek, the winery’s owners, were present at the meeting. Lori Richcreek said she and Daniel want to bring in no more than three IPA beers to have on tap at the business.
An alcoholic beverage permit transfer for the Phillips 66 Convenience Store in Warsaw was continued for the second time in a row to next month’s meeting. This is due to no signage being posted at the building to inform people of the business’s intentions to transfer the permit’s ownership. No representatives for Phillips 66 were present at the meeting.
Excise Officer April Tackett said permit transfers can be continued three times at the local level before the board can make a decision on the permit.
“We have to give them three chances to make an appearance,” said Tackett.
A permit transfer for Board and Brush, Warsaw, was also continued to next month’s meeting due to no posted signage and no representatives present at the meeting.
The board also approved the renewal of Mad Anthony Lake City Taphouse’s beer, wine and liquor permit. The restaurant is located in Warsaw.
The board’s next meeting will be at 1 p.m. Thursday, July 2, in the Kosciusko County courthouse.
