Kentucky Alcohol Beverage Control on Wednesday issued an emergency license suspension for a Lexington coffee shop that defied orders to close after violating COVID restrictions.

New details from the order show that state considers the shop a danger to public health.

Despite being ordered to close on Tuesday, Brewed at 124 Malabu opened its doors to dozens of customers on Wednesday morning.At times, the line stretched out the door, with at least one customer waiting an hour for coffee.

Brewed was ordered to close by the Lexington-Fayette County Health Department after owner Andrew Cooperrider said he would not stop serving indoors.
