I think the college kids will show up but don't expect them to be your bread and butter. Grad students probably would be more of regular customers but again they are not going to spend a lot since well they don't have much.

a big plus around this area is that we have one liquor shop with decent beer, the rest is whatever walmart carries. the liquor shop doesn't have a great selection. When I am in buffalo wild wings (which actually does have a decent craft section on tap here) I pay attention and see that a lot of people don't just go for the BMC. there is a place that has a great selection of crafts and micros here, but they are so high you can't afford to go there. I stopped in to look for something to satisfy my hop craving, found a few ipas and the cheapest one was 14 a sixer. I'm hoping this will be a good means of advertising as well. I can do tastings of my brews and educate customers on how to start their obsession (i mean hobby). To help cover the overhead, i am hoping to find a building big enough to have not only a decent bbq section but maybe some of the outdoor furniture associated with bbq. I still have some furniture connections from back in the days of our furniture store, i figure might as well put them to good use.

BIG QUESTION: do you guys like the name BREW & QUE. I'm not sold on it, but thinking on it really hard

I do like the name, but I don't see how it invokes homebrew. To me, it is just a BBQ place...as easy as it sounds...BBQ & Homebrew (it rhymes!) or something along that line shows that you are more than just a BBQ place.

That's true. Both manly hobbies though. Might attract a lot of people just from the name.
