Select Board OKs food, alcohol licenses

Jun 28, 2022

The Select Board approved two businesses’ requests to move forward with food and alcohol sales during the board’s Tuesday night meeting.

First up was Kevin Osgood, owner of Sterling Golf Management, which now runs the Little Harbor Country Club.

The board approved Sterling’s application for a transfer of Little Harbor’s existing seasonal liquor license to the new management company.

Earlier in June, the Select Board granted the company 30 one-day beer and wine pouring licenses to tide it over until the license transfer could kick in.

Next on the agenda was Lucky Goat Brewing, which was represented by co-owner Kendall Peabody.

The Main Street brewery was applying for a food license to serve hot snacks to patrons, Peabody said. He said the plan is to work with Minkle Boys Catering to have food prepared off-site, brought into Lucky Goat and heated at the brewery for patrons.

“So for example, this will be like bowls of chili, pulled pork,” Peabody said.

Board members discussed the details of Lucky Goat’s plans and if the addition of food services would trigger a required increase in parking spaces.

After a short discussion, the board approved Lucky Goat’s food license, with the understanding that Peabody would visit Town Hall to straighten out some minor details of the brewery’s plans.

“Congratulations on starting a very attractive, obviously, and busy new business,” board chair Judith Whiteside told Peabody. “We appreciate it.”
