depending on investors, or in other words, if I were to do this myself. I would go with a class 3 license. 500 dollars a year, and your can produce and sell up to 200k gallons of your own product a year. This means, no liquor, no BMC ( i know you guys are in tears over that one) and no other beer from a distributor. Im not sure if this means I can distribute myself or not. And 200k gallons a year is a buttload of beer. Of course you're going to have your business license, health license, municiple crap blah blah blah. and this doesnt even cover label approval, beer names, lawyer **** so you dont get sued. which I really dont even want to deal with, but kind of have to
A class 6 license here in town is going to cost me about 125k. But thats anything goes pretty much liquor/beer/food/beer to go......*cough strippers
And Ive spoken with the guys at premier stainless. For what I want its going to be roughly 150k. I can find fermentors cheap (jacketed too) Then theres the whole location part. Thats the killer. Where can I do this. Is it zoned for a bar? How much....etc etc legal crap that makes my head hurt.
