Default Any regulations / issues against a Microbrewery in a basement setting?

Hello all,

I have run out of space. If I had my actual brewing operation run in the basement of a bar, would there be any issues that I would need to be concerned about, i.e. health code violation for some reason in the state of IL, or perhaps pressurization issues with getting a liquid product elevated to the 1st floor?

Looking forward to hearing some thoughts.

William Kramer

My first thought is to contact your local health department and state liquor control board.

Bottling the Belgian: A Photo Odyssey

Beer is the mind-killer. Beer is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my beer. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see it's path. When the beer has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

What did your lawyer tell you?

Talk to your lawyer.
Ask on probrewers.com - since professional brewing and home brewing are two completely different sets of legal regulations.
