Brewing questions in the Port City

Friday, May 30th, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY)– Microbreweries have been showing more interest in the Port City.

But city code is causing a little confusion for craft brewers. Thursday night, the City of Wilmington held a public forum to get your thoughts.

Brewing is a way of life for Michele Savard. She owns Wilmington Homebrew supply with her husband and says a small local brewery is not just another bar.

“Craft beer is an art, not something you do after midnight,” Savard said.

It’s an art form that didn’t popped onto the radar of the City of Wilmington until now.

A meeting at city hall allowed the public to give their input into how small local breweries should be regulated.

“It’s not about quantity of consumption it’s about the quality of what their consuming,” said Paul Prite with the City of Wilmington. “It’s emerged recently and it’s just a new emerging business. It’s something that hasn’t been dealt with before in our code.”

The idea is to treat these craft brewers like restaurant owners giving them more options when it comes to where they can open up.

If everything goes according to plan, city council could vote on the issue as soon as August.

Hagan, Tillis start to discuss NC Senate debates

Friday, May 30th, 2014

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan and Republican challenger Thom Tillis say they want multiple debates in their North Carolina race. Exactly how many they’ll appear in is uncertain this early in the campaign.

The Tillis and Hagan campaigns put out separate emails Thursday saying each is prepared to participate in a debate held by the North Carolina Association of Broadcasters Educational Foundation. The group held two for the 2012 governor’s race.

Hagan’s campaign released a letter addressed to Tillis saying she also wants to set a public debate schedule with the House speaker.

Tillis responded with his own challenge of no fewer than 10 debates, spread throughout the state. Tillis wrote to Hagan that he’s accepted debate invitations from the North Carolina Bankers Association and the North Carolina Medical Society.
