Grand Pop liable for Grandkids party at his house?

Grandparents have some wealth and own a beach-front home. Grandkids hold party at the beach home where there is drinking. All drinkers (and grandkids) are of legal drinking age. Most beer/liquor is brought by guests, but some is supplied by grandkid hosts. Do grandparents have any potential liability if someone attending party at their house drinks too much, leaves party and hurts either themself or others while driving home? That is, are they liable because beer/liquor provided by grandkids (legal age) was available/consumed at/on their property? Would it make any difference if the grandparents were not aware that the party was being held?
