Damn, I always thought that would be a great spot for a small grocer. Oh well.

I'm surprised that's not within the icy clutches of Brad Nichols's veto power. I assumed he was the main reason all the other brewing operations are east of Oak.

He impacted a few of the existing east xroads licenses....I think the change was city council changing the rules on who had to give consent if I'm remembering right

The breweries don't seem to be the type of businesses he seemed concerned about, nightclubby, loud music, 3 am hours.

He had beef with Toms Town serving wine and Sundry selling packaged beer as a grocery though. Something must have changed because Sundry has a bar now.

Well sundry doesn't exist.

I know a couple of the breweries were harassed about hours and what they would sell.

Doh. I didn’t realize that they closed. #-o Well, they did have a bar for a little while.

Sundry had a bar in the Crossroads under their previous license. Their restriction — necessary in order to get consents — was to limit the shelf space for package sales.

The breweries clustering in east Crossroads has more to do with cost than liquor. Tom’s Town ran into problems because they bought a building from Brad and made some claims that changed once they went through the license process. That place is good, but their focus on distilling is quite different than, say, Lifted Spirits.
