Some requirements for opening a brewery vary from state to state. However, in all states, you’ll have to comply with the federal Alcohol & Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), and obtain a Brewer’s Notice.

Your Brewer’s Notice is one of a number of legal requirements. The best course of action is to be proactive, and extra cautious, about making sure your brewery is in compliance. That way you can move on to the fun part – brewing beer – without any worries.

    Not as pressing as getting legal ducks in a row, but I would add “Understand that there’s more to running a brewery than making beer.”
    I’ve seen a number of breweries that didn’t take things like wastewater management into account when opening and then ran into problems 3-5 years down the road.
