Health Department Issues Resolved
Things are looking up at The Bruery– my Dad and I met with the Health Department yesterday (yes, I need an entourage) and I believe we resolved our issues and have a clear understanding of what needs to happen to get our plans approved. Walls will be erected, lots of money will be spent, base cove will cover several hundred feet of wall, but I get to move on to opening a brewery. Our friends at Bootlegger’s Brewery in Fullerton are required to do the same thing, so this is the way it goes if you want to open a brewery in beautiful Orange County from here on out. Thanks to the Planners at OC Environmental Health for being patient with us– I’m still learning.
I’m in the process of revising my plans to incorporate what the Health Department needs to see on them, and once I turn them in (today or tomorrow), they should be approved within 3-5 business days. Then I’ll go to the City, hopefully get my plans approved in short order, have my contractor pull a permit, and start construction.
My goal for brewing the first batch is now looking like sometime in October, and that’s optimistic. That’s what I’m shooting for anyway.
