Brewing Company Line
February 21, 2011
Coastal Luxury Management's Cannery Row Brewing Company now has a eyecatching string of kegs dangling from its northern corner, but no beer yet being poured inside.
After hoping to launch in time to pull in the U.S. Open crowds and hosting a handful of soft openings last week, CLM co-founder David Bernahl (below, left, with co-founder Rob Weakley) says their lack of a license to serve sauce was the reason they haven't opened yet.
They had all their documentation in as of Thursday, and according to Bernahl all they needed was "an activation," but Friday was a agency furlough day so the future home of 73 beers on tap, 30 small-batch bourbons and homemade grub by Exec Chef Mark Ayers remains dark.
"Everything happens for a reason," Bernahl e-mails, "just don't always know why... All good!"
