I would check for cider works or small wineries before I go with small breweries. Beer is a completely different animal than cider and I'd choose someone who makes wine before someone who makes beer. (Thats just me)
Cider works will most likely have the ability to force carb and wineries that produce bubbly or sparkling wine achieve this with force carbing also.
I know that in NC, there are a LOT of small wineries that take fruit from other wineries, ferment it and private label for them. Wether the final product turns out ok is a different story since you won't have any control over the process. (Other than in a consulting capacity)
---my bad...I thought I had read in your initial post you were looking for a brewery.
