I believe youíre not able to do that, it has to be a detached building to be licensed as a brewery, so youíd have to have a detached garage, shop, shed, barn, or something.


Really depends on the state.

Let me add just a small but very definitive statement to this conversation... It might make me sound dickish ("no not you Jeff!") This applies to all those without trust funds. If you have a lot of angel investors or you are a trust funder, do what you wish. If you actually need to make a living, do yourself a favor and heed this advice.

If you open a brewery without having worked for another, you are are a fool and you get what you get.

There is no room in the current climate for either amateurs nor sub-par beer. There is plenty of room for good beer and experienced business people. There is absolutely NO room for amateurs. The 90s and itís climate are long gone.

OH SNAP!

I think thatís sound advice, though, but are you assuming that anyone with this prospect makes bad beer or doesnít know what theyíre doing?

Man, I was just at this place called Karibrew recently and it was some of the worst beer Iíve ever had in my life. The place was doing just fine.
