The Annapolis City Council will vote tonight on whether to allow the Ram's Head Tavern on West Street to build a microbrewery.
WM Enterprises, owner of the Ram's Head, wants to put the microbrewery in the property at 25-27 West St., next door to the tavern. The owners told the planning commission two weeks ago they plan to produce 3,000 barrels of beer a year.
The council also will vote on whether to allow Harley-Davidson of Annapolis to set up a service, repair and storage facility at 1816-1820 George Ave.

Cause unclear in death of man found in tub
A coroner has been unable to determine the cause of death of a 64-year-old man found dead in his Annapolis apartment last month.
Sgt. William Powell said the medical examiner found nothing unusual in the partially decomposed body of Gardner D. Brown, a free-lance writer and logo designer, who was found dead in his bathtub on June 13. Sgt. Powell said the case will remain open.
