Antietam Moose seeks permission to transfer liquor license

July 17, 2008|By DAN DEARTH

HAGERSTOWN -- Officials from the Antietam Moose asked the Washington County liquor board on Wednesday for permission to transfer their liquor license to new quarters.

Moose representative Kenneth Kitchen told the Board of License Commissioners for Washington County, known as the liquor board, that the owner of the building that the Antietam Moose leases off Md. 60 plans to sell the property. As a result, the Moose has to find new quarters by Sept. 1, he said.

The Antietam Moose, which has about 900 members, intends to move to a building that was the site of a former convenience store and pizza shop at 640 Frederick St. in Hagerstown, Kitchen said.

"It will be the same name and everything," Kitchen said. "It's basically already there. All we have to do is put in a bar."

Robert L. Everhart, liquor board chairman, said he couldn't guarantee that the Moose would be granted the transfer, but "there was a possibility."

Everhart said Kitchen or another member of the Moose should apply for the transfer as soon as possible because the club has a short time to move, and it typically takes 30 days to process the paperwork. If the transfer is granted, Everhart advised the Moose to refrain from selling alcohol at both places during the relocation process.

The cost to apply for a liquor license transfer is $300, Everhart said.
