What's brewing...

We have completed our application with the federal government (The Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau), which culminated with a 60 minute phone interview on October 4th.  We should be receiving our Brewer's Notice within the next few days.  This means that we have met all of the requirements set forth by the federal government as far as our manufacturing methods and our financial and taxation means are concerned.  We have also filed all of the needed paperwork with Federal Food and Drug Administration as a food production facility.  We also are almost through with our inspections with Dennis Township and the Cape May County Health Department.
We still anticipate that the New Jersey's Division of Alcoholic Beverage Control will finish reviewing our application in November.  The second round of paperwork that we submitted in September weighed over seven pounds; once this is fully reviewed, we will have our site inspection.  Once we are approved, we will begin manufacturing under the terms of our Limited Brewery License, and expect to have our beers on tap in Yesterday's in Marmora, The Tuckahoe Inn in Beesley's Point, The Buck Tavern in Corbin City, and Levari's Grill in Petersburg.  Bottles will be available in Yesterday's Package Goods Store, Gleeson's Liquors on Sea Isle Boulevard, and Passion Vines in Somers Point.
Once we are up and running, we will also apply for our Brewery Tour Permit with the ABC and Dennis Township.  This will allow us to offer tours and up to four 4 ounce samples at the brewery.  Customers will also be able to purchase up to a 12-pack to take home and enjoy.  We hope to have our Brewery Tour Permit by the spring.
