C'mon... I was kiddin'...

I have a selectman, sorry, selectwoman, that lives on my street and she didn't think there was any "liquor license" needed from the town since we aren't a bar or liquor store. We will have a small tasting area for free samples under our state license but i don't think we need anything from the town other than an Occupancy Permit fromt eh building inspector and that's the huge fight we're fighting now.

That should be the case. I didn't realize that you were not serving, like a bar. You typically only need a license if you are selling for consumption on premises or to take away. I would guess that if you are selling through a distributor you would be fine. We have to approve licenses for stores in town that sell alcohol.

The biggest thing, like I keep saying, is getting over this battle with the building inspector. From there, we HAVE to get to work on a sign we're going to hang in the tasting area. We are less than half a mile from Wheaton College so we're going to make up a sign that says, "naked boobs = free beer".... and then in small print put, "women only" and put that in the tasting area.

The beers are free anyway but... let's not cloud the issue.

We figure that'll make us very popular with the town.

Unless you're already post-op and didn't tell anyone, you don't qualify

You cant really blame the town. They are public servants, it's their job to protect the citizens of the town. No one else on HBT may know your dirty little secret but I know and the town officials know. I think they are doing a splendid job!

Time to come clean, Cape. (semi-intentional pun). Not five steps from your front door stands another door, a door that the good, God fearing people of Norton view as a blight on their name, The "Me Luv You Long Time Massage Parlor." that den of iniquity shares not only a common wall but a water and septic system. Good God man! Imagine what public health hazards are liable to start incubating under the streets of Norton once you start flushing out your fermenters? The Love Canal Toxic Waste Dump is going to look like a spilled bottle of breast milk.

No, I for one applaud the dedicated efforts of the Norton public officials.

Nope. That place is gone. They closed. Matt and Frank were at Da Bog today and that space has been cleared out.

But the pathogens linger on.

Wait... Are you saying that you can now carry on a conversation without having to shout over the bang bang bang of the neighbors furniture slapping against the wall?

No more races between you and the Dragon Lady to see who can bring their current project to a boil?
