How many of you would be interested in participating in an idea similar to a farmer's market? It would be a gathering of homebrewers. Instead of a harvest being sold, it would be the beer, wine and mead of the homebrewer. You could even accept orders for batches at the customers request including reqested recipes and flavors. I want to know how see how receptive everyone is to an idea such as this to see if I would be wasting my time chasing this or not.

This is true but one state is trying to push a way for brewers to sell their brew at farmers markets, flea markets, ect. Which one exactly I do not remember...

I already have everything planned out, and I already have that figured out. It's quite simple, but I do not wish to disclose too much information.

Many people would. The trick would be making something like that economically feasible given all the laws governing the production, distribution, and sale of beer and wine. If you figure it out, please let me know.

I have an entire plan for this, but I can't reveal too much in case someone else wants to take this idea from me.

Sounds like something I would be interested in as long as I had a guarantee that the ATF wouldn't raid the event and arrest everyone!

Kind of hard to give our thoughts when you can't reveal much more details about it...

I want to start it off as just selling and ordering. This can include what beer the customer wants, how much, and how its bottled/kegged/casked, etc. I will eventually have a tavern for this as well so not only can you sell it in bottles, etc., you can put it on tap too. It goes on further from there.
