Thunderhead Brewing in Kearney was one of the 94 businesses checked during December for selling alcohol to minors.

Jordan Heiliger, a sophomore political science major from Lincoln, serves up a pint at Thunderhead Brewing in downtown Kearney. "I think it's important to card everyone because I wouldn't want me or the business to get fined," Heiliger said. Thunderhead was in the 86 percent of businesses who refused to sell alcohol to minors in a recent sting conducted by the Kearney Police Department, Buffalo County Sheriff’s Office and Nebraska State Patrol. According to a press release, of the 94 businesses checked, 13 were cited for selling alcohol to minors. Serving a minor is a major offense—classified as a Class I misdemeanor, it is punishable by up to one year in jail and a $1,000 fine.
