I've been home brewing beer for quite a while and some friends and I are looking into starting a microbrewery. Each one of us brings a different skill set, that we think combined will make us very effective. But it is a regulatory nightmare getting started. There are at least 5 different license to make the beer and that isn't counting taxes, zoning, utilities. The number of agencies we have to file with is a little discouraging, how do other small businesses deal with this?
