Step Three, is to call your “friend” at the State Government Micro Brewery License or Distillery License office. Greet them by name and tell them you have completed the application, but you wanted to check a few questions before sending in the application. Ask your questions OR verify some of your answers to make sure it is correct. Verify where to send in the application and what fees are due. If you are close enough, tell them that you will be in their area on a certain day and that you wanted to just drop off the application and fees. If that is allowed, do it, it is time well spent. Tell them you will be in the area doing an activity that you enjoy. Hopefully you will find common ground with the Regulator and build on your relationship.
