Commission Meeting Date: 11/13/2020                    Title: MLCC Tasting License for Former
                                                       Boars Belly Location

Submitted By: Jake Eckholm                             Department: Economic Development

Brief Summary: Boars Belly has permanently closed their location at 333 W. Western Avenue, and
there is a new interested party wishing to lease the space. West Michigan Rum Company, parent
company of Burl and Sprig, is planning a collaboration with a prominent restaurant in Grand Haven
for a restaurant/cocktail bar and requires a liquor license application to be approved by the local
unit of government per state statute.

Detailed Summary:
The Boars Belly closed its doors last fall with the intention of becoming a seasonal restaurant, but
with the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic they have elected to shut down permanently. The space
is available and Burl and Sprig has a contingent lease agreement. This is dependent on them
being approved by both the City of Muskegon and the LCC for an Offsite Tasting License, which
allows spirits manufacturers the ability to serve samples and cocktails at a location other than their
primary facilities. The two applications (one for each suite being leased) are attached to this
submission for review by the City Commission. There are also two resolutions attached that must
be approved either recommending or not recommending the applications, per the process provided
by the Michigan Liquor Control Commission.



Amount Requested: N/A                                 Amount Budgeted: N/A

Fund(s) or Account(s): N/A                            Fund(s) or Account(s): N/A

Recommended Motion: A motion to approve the resolution recommending license approval as
presented.
