The Boston Licensing Board today ordered Jerry Remy's on Boylston Street to shut for a day as punishment for an incident in which a worker helped somebody under 21 get a draft Coors Light.
Unfortunately for Remy's, a Boston Police detective was conducting an unscheduled inspection and noticed the young-faced patron - two months after a similar incident in which pretty much the same thing happened.
In both cases, the bartender didn't ask for ID after the worker vouched for the customer, police said.
Remy's said it fired both workers involved and has hired a director of operations to try to stanch the flow of alcohol to minors.
Remy's can pick a date on which to serve the suspension - or appeal the penalty to the state Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission.
