(Neb)-Scottsbluff City Council Endorses Mini-distillery
SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. (AP) - The Scottsbluff City Council is supporting plans to build a micro-distillery in the city and is sending a positive recommendation for the distillery to the state Liquor Control Commission.
Father and son Phillip Mitchell and Austin Propp will share ownership in the business they've named Great Plains Distillery and which they say will rely as much as possible on locally-grown crops.
Mitchell says he and his son will initially be the sole workers but hope to hire employees as the business expands in the future.
Council members expressed concern that Propp has twice been charged with driving while intoxicated, but still decided to support the distillary plans. Propp says he's contesting his latest drunken driving charge, issued just 2 months ago.
