Beer Board Is Favored In Ruling

A Hilham woman filed suit against the Overton County Beer Board after being denied a beer permit for her business.

Gabrielle Felicia Ayers of Hilham filed suit in conjunction with her business, The Old Crossroads Market and Eatery, in December 2019 after her application for a permit to sell beer for on-site consumption was denied.

According to the complaint, it stated the board’s refusal to grant the permit was “arbitrary and capricious, was not based on evidence and denied the rights guaranteed by the laws of the state.”
