Unless you have a good technique, good ingredients, good equipment, and talent, you'll still need to get around all the local, state, and federal regulation hoops. Oh, and a money man to back you up in all of this. Missing any of this, you will not get off the ground.
And even if you do, it's a market that has been generally glutted where having a general good name, and not just a johnny-come-lately make it discouraging.
Look at the craft beer shelf at your local liquor store. Ever wonder how many others have been kept out of that store by a salesman, indecisiveness of the public from a crowded & confusing market (to outsiders), and the reluctance of a store owner to keep a non-selling item on their shelves?
Welcome to the micro/brewpub/craft beer world.
My advice to you is to start a nano distillery.
