Chanhassen Set to Change Zoning Laws, Ordinances to Attract Breweries

Breweries and distilleries are becoming all the rage, but Chanhassen has yet to attract one. But that could soon change.

According to the Chanhassen Villager, city staff has proposed updates to Chanhassen’s zoning standards and ordinances in order to attract brewpubs and breweries, or other similar establishments.

Current laws limit such facilities to industrial areas, and does not permit downtown brewpubs, taprooms or cocktail rooms, the report said.

The city proposal would update zoning laws to allow microdistilleries and smaller breweries, defined as those producing less than 3,500 barrels a year, with cocktail rooms/taprooms, and allow them downtown, with larger breweries needing a conditional use permit, the report said. In addition, city staff proposal includes creating cocktail room, taproom, and small brew off-sale licenses.

The new proposals will be reviewed by the Chanhassen City Council at its June 11 meeting, the report said.
