No. So it's different in Springfield. Well that 'splains everything :P

That's at least what I got from the other comments. Could be wrong, though.

Most breweries in town are open till 11. They often do last call earlier than that. That's allowed either by their zoning or the PUDs they got. As Field said, Main Street Springfield is not zoned to allow for breweries, so Hyperion had to get PUDs; due to pushback they had to settle for 10 pm. At any rate, it's not personal when any bar refuses to serve customers after their last call, especially when they probably wish they could serve them later.
Do you believe that when the blue jay or another bird sings and the body is trembling, that is a signal that people are coming or something important is about to happen?

It's ironic that Shantytown pub can serve alcohol till 2AM (and it is closer to residential). What was the city afraid of? Noise on Main Street at 11PM?

I think both should be allowed to be open any hour they wish. I've never understood who closing at 2AM (the state required closing time) was supposed to help. It's not like people will still be sober enough to drive at 2AM, but not at 3 or 4; and there isn't some greater societal purpose of keeping people employed. I don't know many people that make it to work the next morning after leaving a bar at 2AM.

Almost everyone had a full glass. Last call had happened 7 minutes before.

Anyway, a new business and customers walk in. The place pretty full. I'm 100% certain none of those folks was leaving in the next 5 minutes.

Pretty certain if a 'friend' had walked in he would have been served.

Too many choices in Jax craft beer to treat a person that way.  Not to worry, I found a place that took my money.



I believe they must stop serving at 10 PM by law.  If it was indeed after that, then as a new business, how are they to know of someone undercover was watching and would bust them for even 2 or 3 minutes? I suspect the hard fought process to get their licenses will keep them a bit "letter of the law" for a bit. 
Exactly right.  Nail on the head.  So much love and energy has gone into that endeavor and everyone is trying to follow all the rules to a "T".  They went through the eye of a needle to get approval for a brewery in that location with council, that placed parameters on what they can sell and when.  Those parameters included them having to stop serving beer at 10:00 PM considering the type of business license they have.  They don't want to risk what they worked so hard for.  Music man, go back again a little before ten and try one of the new specialty brews they just created.  The beer is great and the people are all very good folks. They didn't make the law, they are just trying to follow it.  :)

Went with a friend to Hyperion last night. Walked in the door at 10:02 PM.  There were about a dozen folks in there enjoying their beers.

The owner/bartender would not serve us. Tapped his watch and said, "Sorry, closed at 10."

It will be a long time before I go back....................................

To much fauxrage to bother asking why?  Glad the folks here at MJ could help you out.

BTW, they are serving their own beer now. Last night was an Irish stout that tasted about average (I'm not a good judge of stouts because I generally avoid them), and a strawberry shortcake beer that was unlike any beer I've tried before and had a very strong strawberry flavor to it. My wife enjoyed the strawberry beer while I drank the guest beers. They have a good selection of guest beers on tap and they must be ordering one keg of each at a time because they were frequently running out and switching to a new beer. The selection was entirely different, than it was on opening night. It was very busy when we were there (around 6:30PM yesterday) and it was good to see a good amount of the patrons had walked down from the Main Street Cruise to have a beer.

Changing the selection quickly is part of their business plan.  Folks can always expect something new when they visit.  :)

Do you own shares in the business or something?

I'm pretty sure they are privately owned. No shares available, yet!

WTF...LOL
In a boat at sea one of the men began to bore a hole in the bottom of the boat. On being remonstrating with, he answered, "I am only boring under my own seat." "Yes," said his companions, "but when the sea rushes in we shall all be drowned with you."
