City Council gives approval for microbreweries
Published: January 22,2014
GULFPORT — Microbreweries will be able to locate in Gulfport.
The Sun Herald reports city zoning laws did not allow microbreweries until yesterday, when the City Council agreed to add them to the list of permitted uses.
Microbreweries, where craft beer is made in small amounts, will be allowed in the same places that now permit bars or lounges. The city restricts both kinds of businesses from locating too close to schools and churches.
Urban Development director Greg Pietrangelo said the zoning change was requested after a potential microbrewery operator approached the city about locating in Gulfport. Pietrangelo said the potential business has not yet been identified, but would be located in the downtown business district.
