Lawrenceville considers request to allow brewery in depot area

The Lawrenceville City Council will consider a zoning change request Sept. 7 for a brewery on .716 acres in the Depot and Warehouse Revitalization area. Jeremy Mazzawi, the proprietor of 1821 Brewhouse Inc. doing business as Slowdown Brewing, is requesting zoning to allow for a local craft brewery with tasting room at 407 North Clayton St.

The plan includes revitalizing the existing concrete block building and brick warehouse structure to meet architectural requirements. Documents filed by the city’s Planning Department recommend approval with conditions including guidelines for the site design and architectural building elements, exterior signage, and parking.

If approved, Slowdown Brewing hopes to move through the federal and state licensing process for an opening by the end of this year or early 2017.
