Description

Vitamin Sea Brewing is one step closer to opening its second location on the South Shore.

The Plymouth Select Board on Tuesday approved a slate of licenses that will allow the brewery to operate at 98 Water St. Unit 102, right across the street from Plymouth Harbor. It will be neighbors to La Baia restaurant at the Bradford Lookout Marketplace and Flats.

Dino Funari, founder of Vitamin Sea Brewing, said he's hoping to have the location open in March.

The brewery will function in a 4,000-square-foot space with 2,000 square feet of outdoor patio space in the front. Funari said the location would be open year round, seven days a week, with the proposed hours being 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Parking will be available off-site.

Funari noted that minimal brewing would occur on-site to fulfill the requirements of their farmer-brewer license, but most of the product would be coming from the Weymouth location.

A future neighbor at the meeting voiced uneasiness about noise. Funari said he could sympathize with anyone who has concerns, because he lives in a “a very congested neighborhood in Hull where everybody’s on top of each other.”

“We want to be good neighbors,” Funari said. “We’ve been very, very sensitive to concerns and want to make sure that people are happy.”

Funari added that there would be music inside as well as acoustic musical acts allowed through the amplified music permit.

“We’re not a music venue. We’re a brewery, but having extra programming, like music and things of that nature, it's just another thing that attracts people,” Finari said. “And in the tough climate that we have as it is right now to bring consumers in, we need to do whatever we have to do to try to capture people to come in.”

Select Board Member Harry Helm tried to alter the permit to allow only non-amplified music, but he didn’t get his colleagues’ support.

Vitamin Sea Brewing opened its Weymouth location at 30 Moore Road in February 2019. The company sells its products in more than 20 states, plus in Europe, Asia and soon Australia, Funari said.
