Food service questions put brew pub on hold

Courtenay council has decided to give the Gladstone Brewing Company time to address concerns of the Downtown Courtenay Business Improvement Association before endorsing a brewery lounge proposal.

The company is planning to open a micro-brewery at 244 Fourth St. It hopes to allow patrons to drink beer in a lounge area on the manufacturing site.

Though it supports the brewery in principle, the DCBIA harbours concern about plans for a food truck, which would not pay a downtown levy but would “reap the rewards of a downtown location,” association president Deana Simkin states in a letter to the city.

“The DCBIA would like to see a higher level of commitment and investment from Gladstone Brewery by building the facility to provide their own food for their patrons.”

Council voted Monday to postpone consideration of a final resolution to the Liquor Control and Licensing Branch.

If council does not support the issuance of a lounge endorsement, Gladstone would not be able to re-apply for two years.
