Beer tasting rooms back on tap

Sign On San Diego provides this welcome followup to the San Diego brewery tasting room scandal:

The great beer bust of 2010 has gone bust, as the county Department of Environmental Health this week reversed itself and tasting rooms reopened at four local microbreweries.


The county then dropped the matter. “We got clarification, and we decided to allow the state jurisdiction,” Gath said.

So the tasting rooms are back in business.

“As long as we’re operating the way we were, we’re OK,” said Peter Zien, AleSmith’s brewmaster. “I lost a weekend’s worth of business in the tasting room and no one has apologized for that, but I guess that’s the way it goes.”
