“This matter has been resolved among neighbors which is the way it should be handled,” [Floyd Attorney Jonathan] Rogers said, speaking for the Lacostes. “Both sides are happy and there is no lingering bitterness from the dispute.”
Under terms of the agreement, the microbrewery can hold up to 20 “tastings” a month at their location as long as it is limited to “friends and/or relations.” There are no limits on the brewery’s right to sell and ship their product to individuals through phone or Internet sales. The brewery also will not advertise its location on Thomas Farm Road or promote itself as open to the general public for “tastings, tours, events, on premise consumption, or person to person retail transactions except as permitted by (the) agreement.”
The agreement is described as "amicable" and the opposition parties have agreed to not oppose any further ABC licenses or permits for the brewery. That's good news. After all, we're all friends right?
