    I ran into Tom at lunch a few months back and he asked if Chuck had mentioned the new still. I forgot to ask, but it's good to know that it is great news.

    I know those stills and their history so well, and have so much affection for them, that it feels like knowing you found good homes for your dog's puppies.

    Confirmation of the above:

    "And not just because it's 9,000 square feet, featuring two main rooms and a large open-air patio. Or that it has a brewery. Or that it has a distillery coming that will make whiskey, rums and vodkas."

    Re: Cleveland Whiskey

    Andrew Tvreekem is the brewer and distiller. He has 20+ years experience as the brewmaster at Great Lakes Brewery, Dogfish Head, and Fredrick Brewing. Pretty impressive resume, and one hell of a brewer.

    They came to our place several months back for a chat about brewing and distilling under the same roof.

    I'll guarantee you it'll be some of the best beer that can be found, and I'll be stunned if the spirits aren't top notch in short order.

    Nice people, too.

    Re: Cleveland Whiskey

    I wonder if they know about this:

    Subpart F - Location and Use (of distilleries)

    § 19.131 Restrictions as to locations.

    Distilled spirits plants shall not be located in any dwelling house, or in any shed, yard, or enclosure connected with any dwelling house, or on board any vessel or boat, or on premises where beer or wine is produced, or liquors of any description are retailed, or (except as provided in §19.133) on premises where any other business is conducted.

    (Emphasis added)

    Must be a way around it. I know of several other places that do it like that. Wonder why that was ever put into the law?

    Re: Cleveland Whiskey

    We had all three licenses under one roof up in Ann Arbor. A winery, distillery, and a brewery. Sold both beer and spirits to go. TTB officers walked us through the whole licensing process.

    Re: Cleveland Whiskey

    Apparently a "separate premises" can be created with a wall. As near as I can determine, that's the deal.

    I just drove by there after lunch and they have "Distillery" right on the marquee.

    Going later for some beers. Will see if I can suss out any more information.
