A drinkery in Kentucky that sells both coffee and alcohol had its alcohol license suspended by the state's Alcohol Beverage Control agency (ABC) on Wednesday after failing to comply with COVID-19 restrictions.

Despite an order from the Lexington-Fayette County Health Department to close its doors on Tuesday, Brewed at 124 Malabu in Lexington, Kentucky, opened for business on Wednesday and was inundated with customers who came in a show of support for the store, the Lexington Herald Leader reported. In response, ABC issued an emergency suspension on the establishment's license to sell alcohol.

Owner Andrew Cooperrider -- who is identified as an official in the Libertarian Party of Kentucky, according to his Facebook page -- refuses to stop serving customers inside his establishment.
