Taprooms permitted

If you have ever wanted a new place to wet your whistle near your home, the prospect is now closer to reality. Recent zoning changes for industrial and commercial districts, cleared the way for the possibility of taprooms, breweries, brewpubs, cocktail rooms, microdistilleries and wineries in Bloomington. 

After a May public hearing, the City Council approved code amendments as a final step in the process permitting taprooms. During last fall’s election, voters overwhelmingly approved a measure to remove a section of the City Charter that prohibited taprooms and cocktail rooms.
