Section 76 of the LIQUOR CONTROL ACT does not prescribe a specific fine for this offence. As such, you could argue that a very minor fine is appropriate since it's your first offence and you were unaware the person was underage. If you agree to plead guilty and the court sees you're taking responsibility for your actions, the fine imposed may only be a few hundred dollars.

It is important to note that the Liquor Control Act isn't a criminal statute, and as such, even if convicted you would not have a criminal record.

Hopefully that answers your question.
