Salt Lake City Wants More Breweries
Basically this means more smaller breweries and specifially brewpubs for city than zoning currently allows. One great example of this is Avenues Proper. They operate within the Avenues neighborhood Salt Lake City making beer and serving food. The operation is small enough and the impact of the business on the area is so slight, that if you know nothing about the pub you'd never know beer was being made there. Of course there are many in the community that think there too many breweries in the city and appose any changes.
This ordinance change is still in the proposal stage. The SLC Council has scheduled a public hearing on Tuesday, November 10, 2015 at 7:00 p.m. I urge anyone who supports these changes to attend this meeting and let your voices be heard.
