HENDERSON CHANGES BREWPUB LICENSE

CraftHaus Brewery, 7340 Eastgate Road, has worked with the city of Henderson to amend its brewpub licensing, which helps the business get one step closer to opening.

The amended license separates brewpubs into two subcategories: gaming and nongaming. Before, there was only one tavern license with a $60,000 initiation fee.

The non-gaming brewpub license is now $10,000.

CraftHaus is expected to open in 2014.
