It's now called the TTB and they are the last ones I'm waiting on. I have my Sellers Permit but the TTB has to give me a Brewer's Notice before I can sell.

He made 2 million on the project . So after expenses they hit him with about 300k more than he made

There are web sites that list all the permits and licenses etc.. necessary. I'm still dealing with the state and feds but it's all going well. They're not used to such a small operation. Right now I'm basically a homebrewer wanting to sell his beer. I don't have all the numbers but it's something like .20/gallon excise tax, $1,000 Surety Bond, around $400 for upfront taxes and license fees. I still need to get a label okayed from both state and feds. Everyone wants a piece of the pie.

Once they all get a piece, any idea what volumes you have to produce and sell to break even?

Given a lack of overhead and low rent where the beer will be sold, I'll be making a profit after three 5 gallon cornies/month.
The only reason I decided to do this was because my brother does his wine tastings out of a small store in a great location. Plus I was lucky enough to meet a guy who was going to open a Brewery but decided to go winery instead and he's "long term loaning" me all the brewing equipment he has. I just have to give him a beer once in awhile. This includes a complete 7 bbl system, should I ever need it. But a nice 3 tier to start plus brewing vessels, otherwise I would have never considered it.

I was recently reading about all of the requirements and restrictions on the label. I had no idea there were that many rules for a label on a bottle of beer.

Best of luck! I'm jealous.

I think his plan is to hire a bunch of 18 year olds in bikinis and give them beer guns.

Looks great, looking forward to watching the progress...

Id love to brew beer, but that means Id be home daily, and I cannot handle that!!!

Kudos to you for converting your hobby.

Will this be THE income soon, or is this a side gig like my part time writing gig is, to fund my other vices?

Only a side gig. Perhaps something to retire to in 20 years. I work from home and the brewery is 38 ft from my house so it works for me right now.
