Thank you so much for your contribution! Can't wait to send out rewards. We are so stoked.
As for convincing investors- not a chance. There are tons of operating nanobreweries and that already proves it's viable- tasting room laws and self-distribution make it profitable if you care not to draw a salary. The banks are interested in making money for themselves- not for your company.
They want to see bigger breweries with more chance of turning a profit run by people with experience in the industry. That's just good business sense. Don't expect anybody but your friends and family to start believing in you enough to give you money. We've got over 50 breweries and brewpubs in San Diego county- the pessimists on probrewer are partly right when they say "not every homebrewer can own their own brewery." They got to that conclusion in a different way, but that doesn't make them any less right.
We're content to be a small local provider of amazing craft beers that anyone can enjoy, and as long as we can work on converting BMC drinkers with tasty, sessionable beers, we can continue to appeal to the beer weirdos out there like myself with some interesting, obscure beers too. We'll see where this journey takes us and we couldn't be more excited.
I can't be arsed to keep up this list of what's in the fermenters, but hey, check out the cool brewery I own!
