First up on the ol' newsfront, we crossed the first of our (probably many) hurdles on the licensing and permitting front! The short version of the story is: both the ABCC and the city liquor board approved our alteration of premises application!
So are you all clear to expand the taproom?
So... what's this mean for you?
In the immediate term? Probably not a hell of a lot. We've got the permits to have alcohol in there, but there's still a ways to go before we can have people in there. If it helps, think of our set of permits like a baseball team - we just hired our goalie.
You do know there are no goalies in baseball, right?
Of course we do, it's just been a while since we've gotten a bunch pedantic emails.
So what's next?
Excellent question! For reasons that aren't entirely clear to us, the steps that we need to take are a closely-guarded secret in this city. In the meantime, we're just gonna keep painting every surface we touch over there!
Any idea on a timeline?
Not even a little bit! But have faith, true believers* - you'll know as soon as we do (though if it's anything like the last time we did this, we'll find out the timeline after it's already passed).
