Council supports Twin City Brewing lounge request

Twin City Brewing Co. received another thumbs up from Alberni city council on Monday night.

Twin City Brewing Co. received another thumbs up from city council on Monday night.

Twin City brewmaster Aaron Colyn had already applied for and received a zoning amendment from the city in order to operate a microbrewery.

On Monday, he was back for a lounge endorsement from council.

“Twin City Brewing Co. has applied to the liquor control and licencing branch for a brewery/lounge endorsement for their establishment on Margaret Street. The liquor licence branch has completed their initial review of the application and they’re asking council to consider the application and provide a resolution,” said city clerk Davina Hartwell.

Colyn, who was in attendance at the meeting, told city council that the liquor board process had gone smoothly so far.

“We have applied for our liquor licence and it has gotten to this point now.

“Provincial government has looked it over and said it is a complete application,” said Colyn.

“We’re undergoing some of the renovations to the building and the improvements that need to take place… we are anticipating an opening in December or January.”

Coun. Denis Sauve inquired whether or not there would be food served at Twin City along with their beer.

“It is actually a requirement to provide food at a reasonable price and non-alcoholic drinks. It is something we’re definitely looking to do,” said Colyn.

City council passed the lounge endorsement unanimously.

“This is one step of that process and I think the fact that council was supportive and they have shown support the whole way through really bodes well for us,” said Colyn following council’s decision.

“I think this is a great thing for our community and you’ve got a big fan club behind you,” said Sauve.
