Title: TTB "field Review"
Post by: micsager on May 29, 2012, 03:54:58 PM
Right now out TTB application status is "specialist review" it says that is due on 6-16.  Then it's "referral review," then "field review."

Does anyone know what exactly is involved int he field review?  I assume they come to our place and make sure everything we've told them in the application true and correct.  Do we have to everything set up and ready to run at that point?

LOL.  That just makes too much sense.  Thanks Denny.

Well, I gave them a call.  They are very helpful for government folks.  Referral review and field review seldom happens.  You do not need everything in place and ready to "turn on," should they decide to to do a field review.  But, it should be more than (and this is a quote) "just a cement foundation and a stack of 2X4's..."

We got reviewed/inspected about two months after we opened. It was a fairly painless process.

Anything more?  What kind of things did it seem they were concerned about?  From where I am in the process today, it seems all about protecting the taxes.

Yup. It's all about volume, really. Make sure you have sight glasses on everything.

Guess we're a bit farther by a few days, we were due the 27th, really a Sunday on a holiday weekend! Maybe we can swap first brews.
