Proposal Hopes to Bring Microbrew Production to Bloomington

The City Council will consider making a change that would allow small-scale production of everything from craft beers to to artisan candles without forcing businesses to go to a manufacturing district, The Pantagraph reports.

In a memo to prepared for the council, city planner Katie Simpson said city staff had received numerous inquiries regarding small-scale production and retail including "microbreweries and other small-scale manufacturing."

When the matter came to the planning commission in May, Simpson said, "Whether you make beer or cheese or soap or jewelry or something of that nature, there needs to be space for them to produce that and sell it on a scale a little bit larger than your home, but not as large as a warehouse."

City staff and the planning commission are recommending the council approve the change when it meets in regular session at 7 p.m. tonight at City Hall.
