Like a bad batch of beer, some ordinances apparently are best dumped and brewed fresh. The Spencer City Council did just that last week when it voted 5-1 to approve the first filing of a clarified ordinance that would allow microbreweries, microwineries and microdistilleries downtown and other areas as a permitted use. The council flushed a previous version of the ordinance last month. City staff had said the ordinance needed clarified language and other improvements. The purpose of the ordinance is to make it easier for someone to open a microbrewery, microwinery or microdistillery in downtown and other areas around Spencer.
