Keep in mind that you'd also need a "brewery license", which is not the same as a liquor license!
From the bottom of the page: Call the Federal BATF and request a brewpub license packet. Operating a brewpub requires only a refundable bond of $1000 and Federal tax of $500 a year. The federal excise tax is $3.50 a keg. A State brewery permit must also be obtained. This is not the same as a liquor license. Contact the TTB at ttb.gov for a brewpub application.
