December 19th, 2014. This is the day we submitted our paperwork to the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB). The TTB website says 90-110 days for approval. We’ll see how well that goes… Before submitting our paperwork we spoke with a consultant to make sure we had all of our I’s dotted. It’s a giant pile of paperwork and with everything else going on it was nice to have a little help. The TTB paperwork is something you can absolutely do for yourself. If you are thinking of starting a brewery and have a question, feel free to reach out and ask.
