"Stonehouse" Featured in News Story Regarding the Easing of Brew Pub Restrictions
The city of St. Paul is voting on a new ordinance Wednesday that could make it easier to open a micro-brewery, opening the way for potential businesses such as the "Stonehouse Pub" located on Smith Ave and featured in this news story.
City Council Member Dave Thune tells 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS that opening a micro-brewery in a neighborhood that is zoned residential is not allowed, but the new ordinance would change that and allow a brewpub in a residential neighborhood.
