Okay, so technically all of this happened Monday, but doesn’t “Double Taproom Tuesday” sound much better? In any case, St. Louis Park and Roseville city councils made it possible for Steel Toe Brewing and Pour Decisions Brewing to open taprooms in their respective cities. Congrats to both!
PDBC’s info is especially curious:
THIS JUST IN!!! Without our knowledge, the Roseville city council took it upon themselves at tonight’s council meeting to create a brewery taproom fee that is absolutely reasonable which kept us from having to go back before them! This will allow us to open the taproom for proper pint sales in time for the Xmas holidays! We want to thank them and let them know we are absolutely proud to be a Roseville business!!
The city passed the taproom law awhile ago but didn’t to create a new license fee. We approached them about it, sent them examples of local taproom fees and they told us we have to pay the full $7,200 regardless. Apparently there was some confusion among the ranks of the city staff. At the City Council meeting last night they took it upon themselves to remedy the situation and passed unanimously a $750 yearly fee. A tad less than the original. 😉 After a fall of getting abused by government TV ad’s, this is very refreshing. I’d love to have the council in for beers but there is something about no more than 2 council members somewhere or something.
