HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — Some Washington County officials are asking state lawmakers to help pave the way for a microbrewery in downtown Hagerstown.

Downtown redevelopment specialist Mike Deming said Wednesday that a prospective tenant wants to brew beer commercially in a building on South Potomac that previously housed a used bookstore.

But members of the county liquor board say they lack the authority to issue a state microbrewery license.

Two of the board’s three members are asking the county’s delegation to the General Assembly to submit a bill that would give Washington County that authority.
