LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - A Lafayette couple is moving forward with plans for a brewing company after addressing concerns from a neighbor.

As News 18 reported last month, it will be called Escape Velocity Brewing. It will be located at the corner of Scott and Grant Streets, at the old Parkside Seafood House.

The Lafayette City Council signed off on a rezone Monday night.

Before doing so, they heard from Hubert Grater who lives next door. He had some concerns, including noise levels.

Both sides have been meeting and reached an agreement, involving a new fence on the property.

"I hope everything works out. I'm certainly going to work with them and I think they're going to work with me. So, we sat down at the Frozen Custard and talked for a couple of hours. They seem like real nice people," said Grater.

"We live in the area, it's our community as well as where we want to have a business. So, we want nothing more than to have a good relationship with him and his wife," said Heather Howard with Escape Velocity Brewing.

It will have a vegetarian and vegan focus. It's set to open at the end of the summer, with plans to have the brewing operation up and running at beginning in 2019.
