Approved! I have been approved by local government for a home occupancy microbrewery. The process took around two weeks from filing to approval. The application process was fairly straight forward. I had to complete multiple pages of paperwork and pay the application fee. I was asked numerous questions by local county planners after the application was filed. Some of the questions I was asked was what chemicals would I be using during the brewing process, how I plan on disposing of waste water, how I plan on disposing of spent grains and hops, just to name a few. The answers I provided became part of the approval conditions so it was important these were answered appropriately for my microbrewery.
What’s next? File paperwork for business permits and LLC with Washington State, design accessory building and apply for local building permits, build the accessory building, file application with Washington State and TTB.
I’ve also been searching for equipment vendors of 1.5 bbl systems, kettles, kegs, etc.
