I'm a home brewer myself so your question attracted my attention.  I'd suggest that you form a limited liability business entity, such as a LLC, for your venture.  You are making "food" so you'll probably be subject to your local health department regulations and may need for facility inspected and approved.  Your municipality may also require a business license of some kind so check that out.  For the liquor aspect, you'll have to call the PA liquor control board to determine what kind of license you need and whether one is available in your municipality.  Some types of liquor licenses are restricted in number per municipality.  If the number of licenses approved for your municipality are all in use, then you might have to acquire an available license from another community and ask that it be transferred to yours.  That would require local and PLCB approval.  Good luck and happy brewing!

I recommend that you seek out a local attorney for a more in depth discussion of the matter. I do not recommend that you take any action steps without such a consult. Act quickly because by waiting, you may lose certain rights and remedies available to you.
