Brew­eries, dis­til­leries to be part of al­co­hol rules

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution - - COUNTY BY COUNTY - KAREN HUPPERTZ FOR THE AJC

The Lilburn City Coun­cil voted re­cently to ex­pand the city’s al­co­hol or­di­nance to ac­com­mo­date distillery and brew­ery op­er­a­tions. The move, meant to bet­ter com­ply with new state law, cre­ates a distillery li­cense and a brew­ery li­cense.

The re­vised code lim­its the pro­duc­tion of dis­tilled spir­its to 5,000 bar­rels and/or 3,000 bar­rels of malt bev­er­ages per year. A bar­rel means 53 gal­lons for dis­tilled spir­its and 31 gal­lons for malt bev­er­ages.

The city cur­rently has one distillery, Hope Springs Distillery, at 4839 Rail­road Ave.
