Hi!

Does anyone know what the limit of alcohol production and storage is in Virginia whereby a fire suppression system is not required?

120 gallons per control area.   No more than 30 gallons open. That is national building code.

Bluefish_dist is correct with one important addition - the 120 gallon limit only applies to liquids containing more than about 20 vol % alcohol. Below the concentration, it is considered non-flammable and is exempt. Also, once the high proof alcohol is in wooden barrels, it is exempt from this limit.
