Can I pay a lawyer in beer?

I'm getting more and more serious about starting a brewery. I don't know where to start with the state, the city, the FDA and the ATF. (Does the ATF even care about beer? See! I need someone who knows these things!) You're not my lawyer, but maybe you know what kind of lawyer I'm looking for and how to find them!

While I've never started a business before, I have a good deal of book knowledge -- I'm not looking for help with that aspect. I'm specifically concerned with beer laws, not small business creation.
I have no idea what I need to do to brew beer legally for sale. Obviously a lawyer sounds like a good place to start -- Googling for anything and lawyers just brings up accident lawyers. How do I find one knowledgeable of relevant law and regulation?
