The introduction of a small vodka distillery in Downtown Tipp City has met one last hurtle this evening.. The Tipp City Planning Board voted 5.0 unanimously in favor of the distillery to be introduced into the vacant downtown Plum Street location owned by Larry Reisser. The property,zoned I1D, was determined as an appropriate use of the facility for both the Buckeye Distillery and Serv-Pro, two businesses owned and operated by Aaron Lee.
Steve and Susan Berger, both Tippecanoe alumni, opened their doors on Friday afternoon to city officials and members of the Tipp City Area Chamber of Commerce. Not just to share hors d'oeuvres and refreshments with them but to also cut a red ribbon to celebrate the opening of Designers Fashion Outlet located at 259 N. Fourth Street in Downtown Tipp City’s legacy district.
This writer was very impressed with the preparations made by West Milton for our team's arrival on Friday night. Welcoming us into town were downtown vendors selling "Beat Tipp" T-shirts. Tippecanoe decided to go with the ever-popular "black out" theme. And oh-boy was Saturday night a night for fighting for the Tippecanoe Red Devils! OSCAA made a decision this year to revive the local competition with an out of conference game for the Red Devis with West Milton.
