Some local officials in Hagerstown are toasting the possibility of a new business coming to the downtown.
The catch is, Washington County doesn't have the authority to issue a state microbrewery license which would allow the holder to make and sell beer.
Currently, 15 counties and cities already have that ability.
The Washington County delegation has agreed to file a bill giving the liquor board the authority it needs.
The building in question is across from the library. The developer hopes to renovate it to include the microbrewery and 22 apartment units upstairs.
