New Brewing Company, Four Corners, Looks to Make it Easier to Open a Brewery

ColdBeerCoolShot.jpgFlickr​Yesterday Robert Wilonsky over at the Dallas Morning News (that feels like putting a shoe on the wrong foot) reported on a fast-tracked code issue aimed at easing restrictions on Dallas microbreweries. As it stands now, these small independent brewers are relegated to “heavy industrial” zones and in order to operate are required to obtain a special use permit, which can be tedious and costly to acquire.

Permits and zoning for microbreweries previously hadn’t been an issue because there weren’t any. But within the past year we’ve seen the birth of Deep Ellum Brewing Company, Peticolas and, now, Four Corners Brewing Company. All of this is good for the city, and whereas city code usually means more restrictions, in this case addressing the issue could help clear the path and make things easier for start-ups.
