Charlotte brewers hit snag in expanding production
CHARLOTTE, N.C. —

A new rule will allow Charlotte breweries to expand in some of the city's most popular neighborhoods.

Channel 9 has been following this debate for three years -- since it first began as a debate about noise.

Monday night, city council approved a rule allowing restaurants, bars and brewers to be 100 feet away from houses, instead of 400 feet away.

Channel 9 spoke to the owner of the NoDa Brewing Company who said that Monday’s vote gives him more options of where to open a new site.

Right now he's considering three possible locations.
