Young duo moves forward with plans to open microbrewery
Robin Miles and Andy Richards are brewing up something new in Uptown Port Alberni.
The couple purchased the former “Valley Wines & Water” building on Third Avenue earlier this year, and are working on converting it into Dog Mountain Brewing—a microbrewery complete with kitchen, lounge and rooftop patio. The building still needs to undergo a rezoning, and then Miles and Richards will need to apply for a manufacturing license with a lounge endorsement in order to sell liquor on site. But they are hoping to have the business up and running in 2019.
