Interesting point. I believe that in my state (WA), a separate location in a building zoned for commercial or light industrial purposes is required. Either way, I have a lot of home brewing to do before I consider anything further. Thanks for the kind words though, I'm looking forward to a lot of enjoyable brewing in here.

haha, thanks.. I think.

I was pretty pleased with how this beer turned out. I make very few beers that require laggering because I only have room in my chamber for one batch at a time. The guys working with me on the garage specifically requested a pils though, so I was happy to oblige. It is quite tasty, though it's starting to feel more like fall around here by the hour.

As far as state goes, Foggy Noggin over in Bothell brews out of a detached garage at his residence. 192 brewing in Kenmore used to brew out of his 192 square foot shed, but he moved. Not sure on local zoning. I think that is where your issue would be.

Jokenring, good to know - thank you. Again, no plans myself to go 'pro' any time soon, but it would be nice to brew more than 200 gallons a year.

I'll look into that more if/when the time comes.

Drywall is done, first coats of tape & mud are on, and the remaining coats are happening today/tomorrow. Time to pickout some colors for the interior. I'm thinking fairly basic white/off white for a commercial shop look, but I'm not really a fan of white paint. I'll do semi-glosso on the walls for wipeability and eggshell or flat on the ceiling. Any thoughts? I'd love to see some examples.

What's with the electrical outlets positioned at the top of the walls above the window? Never seen the put up that high before...

Otherwise, looking good! I dislike white as well, so I would probably go with a very light tan or cream color, just so it wasn't white.

The one you see in the photo there is for a retractable extension cord that will hang above the window (over the workbench). I had planned to install that outlet actually in the ceiling panel, but ended up just putting it on the wall.

Yeah, the focus of this thread has been the brewery portion of the build for sure. I'm pretty excited about the garage and workshop capabilities of the building though too.
Here is an idea of what that part of the space it will hopefully look like when work is done

I may be missing it, Sorry ahead of time. Have you talked about what your plans are for the floor?
Looks very good so far.
