Default Rent a brewery

I was just reading in the beer barons newsletter ( a local branch of a brew club ) that someone contracted another brewers brewery to make his own beer. That is soooo cool!!!! I didn't know that could be done. That gave me a ton of ideas like a brew club could save up and have a really big group brew or if one was looking into starting a brewery it would be much easier not to have to buy all the equipment first but use a contracted brewery, sell your beer, save up until you can buy your own stuff. What do you all think. I'm sure there is something that I am not thinking about.

Its like the underpants nomes!!!!
step #1 steal underpants
step #2
step #3 profit

Land Shark is brewed by Anheuser-Busch. I doubt they contract it out to anyone.

They had a big battle with miller over this. Miller went down in flames in the arbitration. Miller was forced to pay Boston Beer Co. legal fees and the whole nine yards.

I've heard that Sam's Wicked never had a brewery, it was always contract brewed.
Last year Ommegang ran into equipment problems and contract brewed as well.

thats a pretty common thing for breweries to do. there are a couple here in town that contract as well as brew their own. just business i guess.

its called contract brewing. My company looked into it in great detail. Its VERY expencive and a bunch of work IF your going to sell the beer. if its just for you and your club its still VERY expencice and MOST breweries will only do full batches. so if a brewery does 40BBL batches your going to be stuck with 40BBL's of beer bottled.
