At their latest meeting, the Naperville Liquor Commission discussed adding three new liquor licenses across the city.
The commission heard a proposal from AMC Showplace Theatre off Rt. 59.
The movie theatre wants to add liquor to their services, but because the city may have to draft a new license for them to do so, they pushed the discussion to the next meeting.
Granite city, a new development near Freedom Commons, was granted a positive recommendation to the City Council for a late night permit and was also granted a liquor code text amendment to allow them to sell growlers: sealed bottles of craft beer brewed on site.
The commission also allowed the Naperville Parks Foundation to give the use of their non-profit license to Lou Dog Events.
The production company will put on the Naperville Winter Ale Fest in February in Frontier Park with proceeds going to the Naperville Parks Foundation.
“There’s a strong demand for craft beers,” said Josh Seago, Co-Founder of Lou Dog Events. “Everyone is looking for a festival to go to and there’s not a whole lot going on in the winter, so we thought a winter craft beer festival was a natural fit.”
The recommendations for late night permits will now go in front of City Council for approval.
