The owner chose keeping his business at the risk of losing one person's business. Seems like he made the right call.  I think your reluctance to return is a little misplaced.  To each their own though.

There's a law prohibiting serving past 10 PM?

Anyway, In 10 years I have driven to Springfield 1 time to get a beer.  Last night was the second time.  And the place was surprisingly full of people enjoying their beer. Not like it was empty.

He pours 2 beers, we give him $10, and join everyone else enjoying their beers.  Seems like the best choice.

how are they to know of someone undercover was watching and would bust them for even 2 or 3 minutes?

Yeah you Narc.  Quit trying to get businesses shut down.

Was there this Saturday after the home tour and the place was packed. One of the owners, I think Alex, came by everyone's table to make sure we were all enjoying ourselves. Great place and I will be back! The only issue I had were with the beers, they only had guest beers on tap, when can we try some Hyperion brew?

The brewery makes $10 dollar off the beer but risks breaking the law for a $1,000.00+ fine and maybe losing his brewing license from the state.

I think he made the right call. Plus, all breweries in Jax close at 10pm.

I believe they must stop serving at 10 PM by law.

WTF? Is that really a law?  Sponsored by Sen. Boss Hogg (R-Budweiser) perhaps?

As detailed here: http://www.moderncities.com/article/2016-sep-breweries-coming-to-springfield-but-are-they-legal/page/3 craft breweries and brewpubs are illegal in Springfield. Therefore, in order to open, Hyperion had to create their own zoning on the facility called a PUD.

They originally requested to be open until 11pm, but the applicants had to acquiesce to an amendment to those hours when their various exceptions and rezoning application were approved by the Planning Commission and City Council.

Per their zoning approval, the hours of operation are required to be the following:
M-F: Inside sales 3 p.m. – 10 p.m.
   Outside sales 4 p.m. – 10 p.m.
Sat:   Inside and Outside sales Noon – 10 p.m.
Sun:   Inside and Outside sales 2 p.m. – 10 p.m.
Holidays: Inside and Outside sales Noon – 10 p.m.


*When people on this site complain about outdated zoning laws that are holding back the redevelopment of urban neighborhoods and older buildings... this particular case is one of hundreds of examples of why our land use laws are actually interfering with free market forces and ultimately hurting the economic health and quality of life of our neighborhoods.


Perhaps instead of complaining about a small business owner who was courageous enough to jump through various hoops in order to open in a neighborhood that is seen as extremely economically risky... maybe the complaints should be directed towards the public officials that make it difficult for our city to thrive.  ;)

10 PM, especially on Friday and Saturday is ridiculous. I wonder what it would take to have it changed in the future? If it was done as a PUD, it shouldn't be impossible. Hopefully once the other Springfield breweries open, there will be enough of an impetus for the city to reexamine these land use regulations.

Excellent post.

Hopefully, this information helps give you a different perspective of the situation Music Man. You not being served after hours had less to do with you and more to do with the city we reside in. IMO, we're way overdue for a comprehensive zoning overhaul.

Are either of them located in Springfield?
