Licensed to Brew

I appeared (briefly, once it was my turn) before the Board of the New York State Liquor Authority yesterday in NYC. 222 days after sending in my second round of application materials, with some followup along the way, the Blind Bat Brewery is now approved for a NY State license.

When I was going through the Federal application process last summer with the Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB), I was told by the TTB that I was not allowed to brew until I had licensing in hand. So, it's been a looooooong time since I have brewed. The next few weeks will involve finalizing things in the brewhouse and brewing up some test batches to get my brewing chops back.

Stay tuned for actual beer actually hitting actual shelves!

On The Calendar At Last

The Blind Bat Brewery is on the agenda for the next meeting of the full board of the New York State Liquor Authority: Wednesday, April 16th. The full board will vote aye or nay on granting a state license to the brewery.

Stress?
