Two days ago, I noted that Centennial Beverage Group was hit with a $4,756,702 state tax lien. A company spokesman was less than forthcoming when I asked him to explain the matter. So I’m not going to bother calling him this time around, when I tell you that the tax lien is only half of Centennial’s problem. An alert FrontBurnervian points to the TABC site, whereon you can see which joints owe their wholesalers money. Centennial owes Glazer’s, Republic National, and others $5,441,947.
One Centennial store in Dallas owes Glazer’s, Republic, and Serendipity a combined $302,276.35. A Centennial-owned Majestic Liquor (store #178) in Fort Worth owes the same three wholesalers $398,845.99.
Looking at all these big numbers, I can’t help but wonder: will I get out of work early enough today to grab a beer before my son’s baseball game?
