This wasn’t in Jack McAuliffe’s business plan

This from the zoning application by The Rare Barrel in West Berkeley (California):

“We will be a gathering place for artisanal brewers, home brewers, beer enthusiasts and food lovers in general. We will bring to Berkeley well-paying jobs both in the brewery and the retail area that do not require an advanced degree.”

The headline on the story: City approves sour-beer brewery for ‘beer geeks.’

This probably made it easier for those sitting on the the zoning board to give the application a thumbs up: “The brewers will contract with several existing breweries to produce wort, an early stage of the beer, in kettles off-site so as to avoid ‘bakery’ type odors associated with brewing.”
