thanks everyone, I apprecaite all the information. My GF knows some folks at our county planning department and has started talking with them. I paid the $100 to my state for the microbreweries license, and that seems to get the ball rolling. At least I'll find out where the barriers are.
And just FYI, I'm now looking to really make a profit per se. But, as I live in a fairly rural area, and one of just a few homebrewers, I get requests to purchase my beer, or even brewing a special beer for things like Real Estate office Christmas gifts and such. And if I were to choose to do that (hehehehe), I'd like to be legal.
