Not many businesses are dependent upon a law passing before they can move forward but such was the case for one of Ferndale’s future businesses. Downtime Taps was developed around a business model with self-service beer and wine taps, something that until this month was not legal in Washington State.
Downtime Taps Co-owners Tomas Aminnie and Chay Tan were confident the new law allowing for self-dispensing wine machines and self-service beer taps for on-premises consumption proposed by the Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board would be adopted and, as of June 2nd, it was.
So now they are wrapping up the interior and exterior finishes on their building located in the North Sound Business Center on LaBounty Drive.
Tan said he hopes Downtime Taps will be able to open sometime in early July.
