Rowdy Beaver accidentally lets liquor license lapse

WICHITA — Things are a little less rowdy at the Rowdy Beaver these days due to a lapsed liquor license.

The attorney for the bar and restaurant, which is at 656 S. West St., didn't realize it takes as many as 30 days to renew the license.

The attorney didn't start the renewal process until Aug. 12. The license expired Aug. 27.

Manager Rod Minner canceled bands over the weekend but expects to have the license and live acts back no later than Friday, though the license could come through before then.

Minner doesn't expect to run into the same problem next year.

"I guarantee we've already handled that."
