We want to thank all the county commissioners who have supported us and the craft beer industry from day one! We’d like to thank Honorable Juan C. Zapata for having spearheaded this item with his team. We are truly grateful for having had such a proactive commissioner so deeply involved in the community. A big thanks to our newly appointed Chairman, Commissioner Bovo and his aide, Chris, for delivering the final push that is allowing us to establish West Kendall’s first production brewery & taproom. We can’t thank you enough! We would also like to thank co-prime sponsors Commissioner Heyman and Commissioner Cava, for supporting us and ensuring our voice was heard when it was beckoned the least. We would like to welcome our veteran Commissioner Joe Martinez, and thank him for his immediate support. We would also like to thank all the legislative aides, county attorneys, RER, and zoning, for their understanding and genuine concern over the issues that plague local breweries. Thank you for being a part of something that will have an immediate and lasting effect on our industry.
We would like to thank friends, family, and the craft beer community for coming together and voicing your support for the legislative item and our taproom. Your emails and calls made a huge impact today! Of all days that we could’ve had a call to arms, you all came together for us yesterday! The day the 21st Amendment passed, ratifying the 18th Amendment and the Volstead Act ending The Prohibition! Coincidence?! We think not! The response we have received is overwhelming, and we couldn’t be more proud to be a part of such a passionate community.
The legislative item passed this afternoon receiving a unanimous vote in favor of amending the ordinance in unincorporated that has kept production breweries away for so long. We now have less stringent spacing requirements and another zone to operate in. Today marks a historical day for our local micro-breweries and an unforgettable moment for Spanish Marie Brewery. We truly thank each an every one of you and we look forward to seeing you all very soon. #Cheers #SpanishMarie #RepealDay #YesOnAmendment21 #YesOnItem161906 #ThankYou
