Both want to brew beer around around East Decatur Station. The problem: The city discovered local zoning ordinances didn't include a brewing category.
To fix that, the City of Decatur is rewriting the zoning ordinance.
The proposed change, to be voted on at 7:30 p.m. tonight by the Decatur City Commission, would allow the creation of up to 200,000 barrels a year. For comparison purposes, the city says Sweetwater Brewery in Atlanta produces about 100,000 yearly.
The change would establish a license category for the manufacture of beer in the C-3 commercial district under certain conditions and establish a license fee for the manufacture of beer.
City Manager Peggy Merriss is recommending the change be approved.
