Police Visit ‘Ice Cold Beer’ Stand Ran By 11-Year-Old
Multiple neighbors called the police when they saw the 11-year-old boy's sign.
Meteorologists are calling for extreme temperatures this weekend. Some are calling for temperatures to soar about the 100-degree mark in what is certainly expected to be the hottest day of the year so far.
Those conditions can be ideal for things like lemonade stands here on the SouthCoast. Maybe if your children are really imaginative, they can come up with something like this little guy did.
He made his neighbors a little worried when his magic marker "Ice Cold Beer" sign appeared outside one afternoon this week. Some of the neighbors were so nervous about the idea of an 11-year-old boy selling beer at his stand that there were multiple calls placed to police.
When police arrived, they noticed that written above the black magic marker "Beer" was the word "root." It was written with a much thinner, green magic marker. Turns out, he was selling root beer, not alcoholic beer. In fact, he was selling IBC root beers for only $1 each (not a bad price when you think of it).
The Brigham City, Utah police all supported the little boy and bought root beers.
This is the kind of ingenuity that drives so many of our young entrepreneurs for SouthCoast Lemonade Day, which we'll be hosting again in May of 2020.
