I'm currently in talks with an owner of a craft beer bar in Florida about starting a nano brewery at his bar. The goal is to have me start brewing beer at his bar and to serve & sell it on tap. Long term, I want to have my own brewery, but this is a lower risk starting point for me. My question is, can I have my own LLC and be brewing & serving at his bar without violation of the three tier system? If he has an LLC for his business, and I have one for my brewing business, does that prevent us from selling beers on tap directly to consumers?
If anyone has any feedback, experience, or resources on this topic, please share! Thank you.
