    Just got approval at 5 months and 19 days.
    This was the second time I've been through the process, the experience from my first brewery was mildly helpful.
    We never talked to our agent on the phone, she sent an email requesting a few clarifications 4 weeks ago and we sent her everything she needed a week later.
    After 90 days I would call every 3-4 weeks and leave a message basically updating our agent on our progress (equipment will be here next week, equipment is almost done with installation, etc...).
    Not sure if that helped or not, but it was too hard for me to not do anything.

    The phone call we made to our specialist was likely the smartest thing we did. We met the supervisor at CBC and she provided the contact info. She was very helpful, and while I can't prove it, the call likely got us pulled up from a pile, where it got faster attention. We weren't annoying about it, 2 calls and an email over a month, but we had ours completed in 120 days.

    Talked with 2 people at the TTB last week I was told they had just started to process March applications, however mine had been assigned to an agent but as to how far down on the desk i am no idea. Im sitting at almost 150 days so who knows at this point.

    CALL YOUR CONGRESSMAN!

    after I called mine, his office expedited it. You are a business owner and tax generator in your city, pick up the phone man!

    We had to apply for a Bonded Winery permit from the TTB so we can self-distribute (Missouri). We submitted our application on Dec 15, 2015. It was assigned to someone on December 29, 2015. It's Sept 6, 2016 and we still haven't had it approved.

    One brewery in Colorado told us his Brewers Notice took 210 days.

    Sorry to bring negative news.

    Still waiting...

    I am at 86 days right now, and still waiting. Ive been told 4.5 months, so I am hoping by late October to get the approval.

    Yeah, PA has their collective stuff together. Some states are an absolute nightmare. I'm not personally a fan of the way FL or MD do things, way too many hoops to jump through.
    Help anyone in Wisconsin? If so how are they?

    Back to the state.....but definitely closer to the goal.

    Time to raise a pint or many....
    Our state process has been way faster than the feds. Maybe PA is doing something right? Our LCB representative has been amazingly helpful, courteous and great to work with.

    I just called the TTB today. The representative said they are at 160 day average right now, and she sounded kind of exasperated that they are getting a lot of phone calls about it.
