Owners of a West Rehoboth parcel are seeking a conditional use from Sussex County to bring a food truck into compliance at Revelation Craft Brewing, northeast of Johnson Street and southeast of Central Street.
Anthony Crivella and Harold Dukes of Rehoboth Beach filed the application on behalf of DaNizza Wood Fired Pizza of Georgetown, which has been in operation at the brewpub since November 2019.
During the July 23 meeting of Sussex County Planning and Zoning Commission, the applicants' attorney, Mackenzie Peet, told the commission that Revelation was granted a conditional use for its brewpub with a temporary permit for a food truck. A ribbon cutting took place in 2016.
She said a complaint was filed against the location of a tent for the food truck and it was moved. “Now we want to get the lot into compliance,” she said.
Approval of the application would allow the 176-square-foot food truck to operate more than three days, which is the amount of time allowed with a permit.
“The food truck is very low profile located behind the brewery,” Peet said. “And this location is temporary because Revelation has plans to move to a new location.”
The food truck is open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
At the end of the public hearing, the commission deferred a vote to a future meeting. Sussex County Council has scheduled a public hearing on the application at 1:30 p.m., Tuesday, Aug. 25, in the county administration building, 2 The Circle, Georgetown.
The proposed new brewpub location is just a few feet from its current location. Beachfire Brewing Co. LLC has plans to build a new 2-story, 7,000-square-foot brewpub at the intersection of Canal Crossing Road and Central Street. The owners also operate a brewpub in Georgetown.
The county planning and zoning commission has yet to approve the preliminary site plan for the project.
Revelation Craft Brewing is a popular stop on the Junction and Breakwater Trail linking Rehoboth Beach and Lewes.
