This is Bill from Firefly Hollow Brewing and Brew and Wine Hobby. Let me run down what we saw. In May of 2012 the law was changed to allow a Brewery & Brewpub combined license. There are 3 breweries in the state who are going for/registered for the state level license. Two Roads, Broad Brook, and us. The permit lets you manufacture and retail your own beer without food. AKA you can set up a true taproom for only your product- selling pints. You can also sell up to 9 liters/day to direct to consumer retail (read growlers). The issue comes into on a town level most zoning rules are not made with this in mind. The breweries usually are labelled as manufacturing such as Hooker, Back East, etc... This combined status has made it so there is a town by town conversation as to where you would fit in.
I hope that answers the question for those who are curious.
