Breweries

Breweries and brewpubs are an important amenity and business in Austin. They generate much sales tax revenue and sought-after by both locals and tourists.

The Problem

A conditional use permit (CUP) is required if brewery/brewpub closer than 540’ from a SFH.

CodeNEXT unnecessarily limits micro-breweries/distilleries/wineries.


Recommendations

Brewpubs (bars) et al should be allowed anywhere that restaurants are allowed without burdensome conditional use restrictions. City law ordinances on noise and nuisance should overrule land use code.

Breweries et al should be allowed anywhere light industrial is located.

Parking should not be required for bars et al. This is a pedestrian oriented use.

Don’t limit tasting area, this is important sales tax revenue and tourist attraction.

Additional regulations to breweries et al are unnecessary. Noise and nuisance laws should override.
