  1. Brook, Like what you have going on…Could you do a post including more details on the three tier system in South Carolina? As I understand it, I could not open a small micro brewery and a restaurant serving alcohol (seperate businesses). Brewpub vs. Taproom…Growlers? Can retailers brew onsite? thanks
