Yellowstone Club Wants State Hearing Over Seized Alcohol
BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) — The Yellowstone Club is asking state officials for a hearing over allegations its executives violated Montana liquor laws by storing and serving alcohol at a private terminal at Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport.
The state Revenue Department seized 429 bottles of liquor, 70 bottles of wine and 310 bottles or cans of beer from Yellowstone Jetcenter on June 25. The jetcenter does not have a liquor license.
State officials believe the alcohol belongs to a company owned by two Yellowstone Club executives.
The June raid came just days after Yellowstone Club companies agreed to pay $370,000 to settle earlier charges of serving alcohol at unlicensed bars at the private ski and golf resort for the ultra-rich.
The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports Yellowstone Club attorney Shane Reely asked the agency for the hearing.
