Just finished reading through the entire thread like many before me, and I have to say this has been a great story and look forward to seeing how things go moving forward. Gives me hope that I can open my own nanobrewery some day.

Congrats

Almost all of the tasting rooms in town have tables and almost all the new ones have chairs. There are about 20 tasting rooms in town now.

Now that local police and agencies know about how tasting rooms work it is less of a concern. I know hours of operation was a factor at one point too but that seems to be changing also.

Contacting ABC for this is not a bad idea. But you will get different answers from different people and enforcement.

We are going to have tables but no chairs for business reasons. Unless it becomes a condition of our license. We are not asking if we can. Since there is precedent already for tables and chairs in San Diego and with Cali ABC.
Yeah a bunch of the newer places like roughneck, societe, wet n wreckless (sheesh, what a name for a brewery) etc all have seating. I've yet to see anything that limits seating in the ABC paperwork and had previously assumed it was a SD thing, but that always felt odd. Why would the county have an ordinance that superseded cities?

Put a fork in me, I'm finally done!

Hey HBHoss, how are your accounts going? Have you opened any more accounts since your last post? It is encouraging to read about your success starting small; it gives all of us other HBers hope that it can be done without taking out massive amounts of debt to make it work. I plan on upgrading my home brewery in the near future and figured that if this is the step I want to eventually take then I should build my home brewery "to code" to make licensing less complicated. It will either makes things easy for me down the stretch or give me one killer home brewery to be proud of; win win in my book.

Thank you for taking the time to read all this.
No, no new accounts. Winter is a tough time around here. Very little tourist business.

The off-season gives you time to work at the real job and bank some dough. You can also make all those improvements to the brewery!

Wow, I know it has been said before, but this is amazing. I got a buddy in your area who I am going to try and send your way.

Time for an update.
Last weekend I brewed a Red Ale and then a, what I'm calling, Platinum Blond. It's a blend of my Belgian Blond and a Belgian Pale Ale.
I've been invited to pour at an Irish Festival in Visalia CA on March 16th. So I'm building a 2 spout jockey box to use at events like this and taking my Red Ale and probably my Porter as well as the Platinum Blond. It's time for me to start hitting local events like this and get more recognition out there in the beer drinking world.
There's a possibility of opening a tasting room again. Depends on if the circumstances are right for it.
That's about it for now.

If you open one let me know. I'm not far from you in Clovis and am just getting up and running in this hobby. Would love to get the chance to taste some other home brews.
