Ah, sorry then. I read that wrong. We can't self distribute here, damn 3 tier system. I hear it's like $30 a keg.

You can self-distribute, you just can't brew the beer on residential property. Any beer that you intend to sell must be brewed on commercial property.

Unless I misunderstood what she was telling me, but you'll have to call to find that out.

ok, thanks for clearing that up. i still want to call for some other obvious questions, but also i would just like to hear the explanation why a winery can be on a residential.

Dude! Your post just single hadedly answered one of my questions. What does it cost to start a brewery in NJ? Short of the commercial property of course.

Wow, I was under the assumption you could not self-distribute here. That makes it a lot easier and a lot more profitable at least on the nano-scale, at some point distribution becomes expensive without professionals I assume.

I've read a thread here about a guy who got his garage zoned properly to brew commercially in. He wasn't in NJ I don't think but if you own some property and can get the zoning board on your side it might be doable. The licenses are not out of this world $ wise.

renting properties for a nano operation can be found for fairly cheap-as long as you are not trying to live of the profit... if there is any, that is.

I have about 8.5 acres zoned farm, I wonder if I could brew on my property? I bet it is easy to get it changed from farm to commercial, just change the use.
