Default Brewing Operations Manual

It covers how to apply for your federal license and gives you the contact info for all state licensing. They are very similar but each state is different. I of course know Colorado and would be happy to answer any specific questions you have. In Colorado there are two licenses so it depends on if you are opening a brewpub or a manufacturing brewery.
Cheers,
Tom

Any insight into states that can't self distribute or offer pint sales through a brewery taproom, ie South Carolina?

That's tough. It is through the tasting room you can create cash flow to get you going. I assume you are talking about a packaging brewery. A brewpub of course you can sell your own beer. If that is the case you need to build as much efficiency into your system as possible. By that I mean at least a 15 BBL system so there is less labor involved per BBL brewed. Other than that get involved with your states brewers guild to try and change the laws. It is through having a tasting room that small breweries can grow and thrive. Good luck.

I was afraid of hearing that... One of the local breweries around here did get SC to lighten up a little bit. Breweries are now able to give 4 4 ounce samples as long as a tour is provided. In addition, no more than 288 ounces are allowed to be sold for take home in the form of bottles or growler fills. I'm still way early in the research phase of this, but my pipedream is to get maybe a 1 or 2 BBL system set-up with full automation through a web browser so that I can start a brew day while still at my day job. Hoping that I could only sell growlers and bottles out of the brewery in order to raise enough cash to move on to a 10-15 BBL system. For the time being, I will enjoy my 3 keg system and continue on with my mundane job...

Tom,
Thanks for throwing this up on LUlu. As a matter of fact, I ordered it late last week. After hearing you on Basic Brewing Radio from the NHC panel, I am really looking forward to it. Many thanks for your work and insight....

Yes. I merged the threads. The classifieds are for individual one-time sales and trades.

All admin-approved advertising belongs here in the vendor subforum.
